Trafford Housing Trust welcomes new government proposals to get ex-offenders into work

24 May 2018

The justice secretary, David Gaukes, has just announced the government will launch a new prisoner education and employment strategy aimed at cutting the annual £15bn cost of re-offending. The proposals include preparing offenders for employment as soon as they enter prison and increasing the number of prisoners released on temporary license to take part in work placements.

We’ve always believed in supporting ex-offenders into work as a Ban the Box employer. Our social enterprise, CleanStart, employs, trains and mentors ex-offenders who may find it difficult to secure employment elsewhere. Many then go on to find long-term employment with other companies. This cuts re-offending rates and helps people to readjust back into their local community.

We welcome the government’s commitment to help ex-offenders to make positive changes in their lives.
