Recycling Lives Charity & Social Enterprise is an organisation based in Preston and serving the North West of England. It delivers three specific programmes of offender support and food redistribution.
The Recycling Lives offender rehabilitation programme works with ex-offenders both in prison and in the community. By supporting men and women to improve their skills, confidence, and resilience and secure good jobs, it significantly reduces reoffending rates. The residential programme supports men experiencing homelessness. Offering personalised support, access to training and work placements and safe, stable accommodation, it supports men to regain their independence, moving into work and a home of their own. The food redistribution programme aims to tackle food poverty while preventing food waste. Working in partnership with FareShare it takes surplus stock from food retailers and redistributes this to communities, feeding people in need.
