Re-Create Social Enterprises Limited is a not for profit organisation running multiple services based in Ipswich. We offer therapeutic work based activities for learning disabled and disadvantaged people and Work placements for PFS and E4L Learners.

We collect unwanted, unused and surplus items such as; card, paper, film, foil, ribbon, buttons, sequin cut outs, bottles, containers and a whole host of unique items from local businesses. Our attendees then process these items by sorting, measuring, weighting, rolling, cutting, counting, banding, etc, to produce arts and crafts materials.

We sell the items we produce in our online shop to customers who include schools, playgroups, drama groups, businesses and individuals. We offer these items at a fraction of the cost of buying new.

Please browse our online shop for some great bargains whilst supporting a unique project that gives people the opportunity to learn new skills, maintain existing skills and progress.

Currently we are unable to take donations, however, if your business would like to discuss donating unwanted or surplus materials in the future please get in touch by calling us on 01473 603393 or by emailing Graham at gmann@recreate-enterprise.co.uk
