ESF filming

FOUR Recycling Lives representatives were invited to talk on camera about the success of the Achieve North West Project.

The European Social Fund (ESF), who provide the funding so Lancashire Probation Trust and Recycling Lives can help ex-offenders become more employable, invited them to speak on camera about their experiences.

Recycling Lives Chief Executive Officer Charles Jackson, plus Training and Development Co-ordinator Sidonie Richardson and Achieve North West Project participants Jason Newton and Tony Curry travelled to Liverpool for their filming debut.

Unfazed by the cameras and bright lights, the team expressed how successful the scheme had become and celebrated Jason’s title of first person in Lancashire to finish and gain permanent full time employment.

Jason said: “It was a lot harder than it looks, sitting in front of a camera answering questions. I was really nervous, but it was a really good experience that has helped me to boost my confidence.”
