Support for Prison Leavers
Re-building pathways for ex-offenders
Leaving prison as a young person can be a difficult time. We are here to help and there is a lot of local support available to help guide you positively rebuild your life and take your next steps.
Committing to completing your community service is a great way to help you gain job references to get back into work and for adding to your CV the skills that you have gained. By fully engaging with your probation worker you will make quicker progress as they support you get back on your feet. If you receive benefits talk to your JCP Work Coach too – they know more than you think!
