Recycling Unlimited is a registered charity established to assist in the treatment and care of persons suffering from mental illness of any description and members of any disadvantaged or socially excluded group in need of rehabilitation, by providing facilities for work experience and vocational skills training. The work activities provided help recovery from mental health problems through learning new skills, feeling valued and supported as well as developing self-confidence. We construct garden furniture from reclaimed timber and sell this along with donated goods from our charity shops.
We also deliver training programmes, covering a variety of basic personal skills such as basic joinery and carpentry, retailing and office work, gardening and horticulture, painting, computing skills and others. Our training activities aim to help people with mental health problems to reinforce their ‘Skills for Life’ and re-gain their practical vocational skills, strengthen their confidence and provide them with the appropriate transferable skills to increase their chances of employability and help them to re-integrate into society. We provide support to adult learners in literacy and numeracy skills and help people from ethnic minority groups to learn English. Our ESOL tuition and advocacy services for people of ethnic minority groups aim at integrating them into the community, thus preventing them from becoming isolated, depressed and mentally ill.
All the above therapeutic activities help our clients to increase their confidence and self-esteem, gain new skills, feel valued and re-integrate into the community. The end result of all this is an improved mental health which leads to much improved all round well being.
The Recycling Unlimited Organisation is holding an Open Day on Tuesday 7th February between 10am and 2pm.The focus of the day is to promote the work that we do, the various services we provide and to build relationships with individuals and other organisations which will be mutually beneficial.
