The issue of re-offending has become one of the most pressing challenges facing society today. 49% of prisoners released in the UK re-offend within the first year and for those who serve sentences under 12 months this increases to 61%. It is now recognised that the record levels of inmates in prison is not helping to reduce crime. The aim of The Clink Charity is to reduce re-offending rates of ex-offenders by training and placing graduates, upon their release, into employment in the hospitality industry with the support of The Clink’s ex-offender career mentoring scheme. As part of the programme graduates receive dedicated support from their mentor to seek full-time employment within the hospitality sector as well as help to secure accommodation, obtain financial help, open a bank account and anything else to ease their reintegration back into society.
