We are honoured to have been part of Andy Burnham’s Working well summit 5th June 2018. The event was held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester where over 250 people and 160 different businesses gathered together to discuss the working Well programme. The Working Well Programme was developed to help 5,000 people who have chronic employment problems. They have been jobless for at least two years and left their work programme without finding a job.
As part of our ‘Working Well’ programme, local services are working with expert agencies to deliver individual support, focusing on specific barriers to employment. Here at SE Recycling we are totally committed to ensuring that every organisation and individual we meet learns and understands the environmental impact of not recycling ICT and how making a small change can create a better future for us all.

Part of “Working Well” is that we employ local people often long term unemployed and/or people from difficult backgrounds. To ensure we achieve the maximum impact in all we do we have developed a number of initiatives which we consider unique to our industry sector. In particular our work with charities and schools are creating sustainable funding streams and quality work experience for students in line with the DfE 2017 guidelines.
“Working Well” is not just about the unemployed but also about ensuring the youth of today are better prepared for the challenges they face when leaving full time education.
