Recycling Lives Charity launches 2023/24 Impact Report

It also shares stories from the men, women and communities whose lives have been changed or touched by our work, thanks to the chances offered, the support given, and the resources supplied by our programmes.

People like Naomi, Jimmy and Paul, who have used our support as springboards to change their lives and those of their families and communities too.
