Department for Work and Pensions
We work closely with both employers and ex-offenders within our local prisons and take great care to match the skills to the opportunities we have secured.
We focus on building the inmates’ confidence and helping them to get the tools they need to take these work opportunities. This can change the lives of not only that person and their family, but it also impacts the wider community for the better.
We have enabled many ex-offenders to secure work, and it is very encouraging to see more and more employers willing to consider recruitment from this hidden talent pool of people. This is why we are excited to get involved with Only a Pavement Away – because it will help us to assist more people and reduce their risk of ending up homeless on release.
