As a Yorkshire-based family business we believe in the traditional values that everyone deserves a second chance in life.
That is why we at the Reed Boardall Group Limited love working with charities such as Clean Slate Solutions to be able to help people restart their lives when they need it most. We are so pleased to have Michael our latest recruit on board as part of the Reed Boardall family and he is such a joy to work with as we look to a brighter future together.
If anyone out there feels that they need help in any industry or other organisations can help out to give someone a "second chance", especially in the Yorkshire/North East area don’t hesitate to get in touch.

"The Marshall Robertson Group Ltd look to give back to the community where they are based. I came across Clean Slate Solutions and found this a perfect charity for us as we could use our time and expertise to help those who had, for a variety of reasons, experienced situations which are difficult to resolve without help. We are so proud to offer ourselves as mentors and have been genuinely astounded at the results in others, that a little bit of kindness, direction, structure and purpose can achieve. Building on catering skills and learning new skills can turn people’s futures around. I would recommend working with Clean Slate Solutions. It isn’t always easy! … but it is unbelievably rewarding!"
Sally Marshall

Keep doing what you are doing Clean Slate Solutions. Brilliant work!”
