About Us

History

Our work initially began as an initiative under the banner of the Proton Foundation, a European focussed UK charity founded by CEO Ian Green in 2006. In 2013 it was evident that a new, independent charitable entity was needed to ensure the further development and sustainability of the emerging UK work.

Future

Re:style UK is currently active in Birmingham and Coventry and will look to add further recycling and distributions hubs in the future across the Midlands region.

Mission Statement

Re:style UK seeks to facilitate improvement in the socio-economic status of disadvantaged and at risk individuals and families, encouraging their positive active engagement with the wider community.

 

“Our desire is to see individuals identify and release their own potential in order to change their socio-economic status and be better integrated into society. This will be achieved through the facilitation of support and training programmes for those at risk of offending and by the collection of surplus goods for recycling, upcycling and distribution to those in need. “
