Re-offending poses a huge problem to the UK economy, costing anywhere up to £13bn per year. But 68% of prisoners state ‘having a job’ plays a crucial role in stopping this. Help break this cycle!
There’s more to running a successful business than purely commercial gain, especially in an era of evermore discerning customers. Increase the life chances of those from disadvantaged backgrounds and strengthen your CSR status.
