About the scheme

Our scheme in Southampton is managed by Southampton City and Region Action to Combat Hardship (SCRATCH). SCRATCH provides services which relieve the effects of hardship, disadvantage and poverty for individuals and families living in Southampton and the surrounding area. They collect part-full and full containers of paint from traders, retailers and manufacturers in the region. They are unable to accept or collect paint from individuals.

As well as their main premises, where paint is given to people on referral, they have this shop on East Street where paint can be purchased at a low cost. They also request a small donation for the paint from community groups. They majority of their stock is held at their main premises. The shop has a smaller selection so we  recommend calling the shop on 023 8106 0823 to check what they have available if you have specific requirements.

If you need larger quantities of paint for a community project you can also order our remanufactured paint from us centrally. Find out more here.

Below are some of the comments we have recevied about this scheme:

 “Thank you so much for the paint for Shirley.  She has been very down and worried about the prospect of eviction if she does not get her home decorated.  Your support has made a huge difference to her this week and has taken a big weight off her shoulders”.

“On behalf of all staff and residents at West View House, I would like to thank you for your generous donation of paint you gave us to paint the hostel.  Your donation was very kind and we are very grateful to you”.

“Your staff where so helpful and resourceful and we are very impressed with how your scheme is run.”
