At Changing Lives in Cheshire we work with a variety of partner organisations to make a difference in our local communities.
For waste recycling CLiC works with Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) to reduce landfill each year. As well as electrical goods you can leave part used cans of paint for us at the HWRC's. We are part of the Community RePaint Cheshire scheme. So in partnership with Dulux, part used cans of paint can be reprocessed.
CLiC is part of the Furniture Re-Use Network (FRN) and Cheshire Furniture Re-Use Forum (CFRF). In Warrington, we partner with IKEA to re-use waste from its ‘take-back’ programme.
Community partner organisations such as local businesses The Craft Room and Vintage with Grace share our floorspace in Warrington - offering more services and shopping experiences for our customers.
Training and employment opportunities
CLiC works with partner agencies such as colleges, employment agencies, Voluntary Agencies and Job Centres.
We also work with local businesses to provide corporate volunteering and team building opportunities in all departments in Winsford and Warrington. We're always looking for professionals who can offer their time to equip our volunteers and staff with additional skills such as CV writing, successful interview techniques and retail sales and shop design.
Support families on low income
We partner with Local Authorities and Housing Associations. We also partner with the West Cheshire Credit Union to provide low cost loans for Cheshire families buying essential items for their homes.
CLiC supports the West Cheshire Poverty Truth Commission Break Free weekly savings and purchase scheme for families on low incomes.
