Richard Branson kindly filmed this message for our Workable Revolution Conference dated 17th January 2013 join our forum www.no-offence.org follow us on twitter @nooffencecic Employment provides real opportunity for individuals who have been trapped within the revolving door of crime and punishment. Bringing industry and work into prison, smoothing the transition from prison through the gate and back into the community, embedding rehabilitation, placing the offender at the heart of their own solution, is the way forward.
With overseas labour costs rising, and with working prisons now a reality, prison labour could provide just one of the solutions for industry, our economy, and meaningful and positive payback for society and victims. Apprenticeships, social enterprise, self-employment, work placements, volunteering, can all lead to life changing opportunity and employment.
During the day you will have the opportunity to listen to the needs of employers, share significant cross-sector expertise, and debate the issues, to move this complex agenda forward.
'A Workable Revolution' sets out to provide the foundation, networks and shared expertise on which to build a working prisons agenda, maximising opportunities for private, public and voluntary organisations to work together.
