REEL CIC was founded by two local women Kim Lowe and Charlene Burns in 2017, Both women have experienced own personal challenges with the traditional school setting and faced barriers to education. Both left school with zero qualifications. With just over 20 years experience of working in youth, community and education they had a vision to set up their own company to encourage others to reach their own true potential. Both having a passion for people, education and highly motivated women set about making a 10 year dream a reality. They finally did it!
Volunteering with us aims to offer you an exciting opportunity to join a great team to put on other successful projects, groups and training. We aim to support, challenge and encourage you during this volunteer opportunity so that you reach your true potential.
This is what Steph one of our Volunteers has to say:
‘Volunteering at REEL meant people see me as a person rather than just somebody's mum. It helped me realise what I want to do in life’
