Inclusive Rehabilitation

The Recycling Lives business model is focused on creating long-term positive social impact that changes lives. We help reduce reoffending through employment, support a broad range of disadvantaged groups and are rolling out our social impact projects nationwide

Some examples of our programs include:

  • ROTL (Release on Temporary License) work program - this program enables us to work with those reaching the end of their prison sentence and are Released on Temporary License. We support these groups into work across a growing number of UK locations reducing reoffending and providing an invaluable opportunity for dozens of men and women annually
  • Extending our reach - as well as our core offender and ex-offender support we work with veterans, people with mental illness, and those who are at risk of entering the justice system and many others to help as diverse a group as possible
  • Community partnerships - from offering local unemployed groups training and work opportunities, to partnering with schools and colleges we work closely to help develop communities near to our UK wide site network
  • Recycling Lives Charity - we work alongside our sister organisation, Recycling Lives Charity, to deliver support for homeless men, redistributing food to vulnerable groups and reducing reoffending
