WRAP becomes a charity

Posted on 5th January, 2015

Liz Goodwin WRAPThe government-supported Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has officially registered as a charity, chief executive Dr Liz Goodwin has announced.

The organisation hopes that the move will give it access to more sources of funding, after its budget from government has been cut in successive years. Funding for WRAP was reduced from £38.9 million in 2013/14 to £35 million in 2014/15 and is to reduce further in 2015/16.

Despite the change, the organisation has pledged to continue its work with local authorities, retailers and industry.
