Ex-offenders

Over 10 million people in the UK have a criminal record, yet three quarters of employers admit to discriminating against applications with a criminal conviction.

Employing ex-offenders gives companies access to a diverse pool of talent and brings down the £11 billion a year cost of reoffending for businesses, taxpayers and communities.
