Creating Social Value through our Recruitment Services

Recycling Lives People offers more than just recruitment services, we offer the chance to create real social value within your local community. Operating as part of Recycling Lives, Recycling Lives People supports charitable activities that actively encourage marginalised individuals to improve their employability.

Our Residential Charity

Offering supported accommodation, free training and work experience to marginalised individuals, Recycling Lives’ rehabilitation programmes provides a holistic approach to solving the problems faced by these individuals.

HMP Academies

In our HMP Academies, we support offenders when they are still in prison, giving them the chance to learn new skills, earn money and plan for their release. Our Residential Charity supports the homeless, long-term un-employed and ex-offenders after their release, providing supported accommodation, work experience and qualifications to them so that they can focus on improving their lives and gaining full-time employment.

Food Redistribution

Our Food Redistribution Centre also redistributes surplus food from supermarkets and their suppliers to charitable organisations across Lancashire and Cumbria, serving around 13,000 meals a week to families fighting food poverty. Many of these charitable organisations also provide additional services to help raise families out of the situations causing their poverty and into full-time work. Our continuing support of these organisations allows them to save money and improve on these services, so that families receive the best aid possible.

By supporting these services, Recycling Lives People widens the pool of talent we recruit from and raises the Corporate Social Responsibility of companies that use our recruitment services.
