Key4Life is a charity that works with young offenders in prison and post-release for up to twelve months, helping them to find a new path in life.  Here at Social Pantry, we are supporting Key4Life in two ways:

  • We offer employment to young men in our kitchen that have been through the Key4Life scheme.  Our current employee is a shining example of just how amazing the charity is and has recently been awarded ‘Employee of the Month’.
  • Alex Head, owner and founder of Social Pantry, is also a Key4Life mentor and is actively helping an individual to change their attitude, thinking and behaviour through mentoring, advice and specialist support.

Earlier this month, team Social Pantry attended Key 4 Life’s annual charity gala dinner.  With the likes on Bob Geldoff, Rizzle Kicks and Emeli Sande, we had a ball whilst supporting a truly special and brilliant cause very close to our hearts.

During the inspirational evening, we heard from six young men that have participated in Key4Life (across 3 programmes).  They took to the stage for a Q&A session with John Vincent (Founder and CEO of Leon) and we heard all about their stories and how they have turned their lives around.
