Any scheme which can make an apparent 25%+ difference to re-offending rates is worth looking at.
Bounce Back seem to be having a huge impact and I wanted to find out how. They run a scheme at Brixton Prison which helps train prisoners in construction skills, skills which are much needed by the industry.
This means that they have the potential of being “job ready” and able to contribute to society from the day of their release.
Sadly I wasn’t able to film inside the prison as the project has some fantastic facilities which they wanted to show off, but I did manage to grab a chat outside.
