Originally known as The Sanata Charitable Trust, Restart is a registered charity and consists of two Trusts, one based in the United Kingdom, and the other in Gilgil, Kenya.  The purpose of the UK Trust is to generate funds for the development and ongoing costs of the Restart Children’s Centre.

Restart looks after 110 children, aged from a just few months old, in an orphanage opened in 2014 which provided food, shelter, welfare and education.
