Recycling Unlimited are an independent charity supporting people who feel excluded from their local communities because of mental health problems or other barriers to social inclusion.
At their joinery workshop in Hull, they recycle used timber into garden furniture to be sold at their factory outlet. The work activities and training they provide helps recovery from mental health problems through putting routine in place, making people feel valued and part of a team producing real products. In turn they empower people to improve their quality of life through building self confidence, facilitating social interaction in a non threatening situation and enhancing people’s employability.
We funded this video to help the charity raise awareness of their service. If you have suffered with your mental health and think joining could help you, you can contact them on the details at the end of the video.
