Employment is a known key factor in reducing reoffending. Providing work experience for offenders on ROTL (Release On Temporary Licence) or when they have left custody is an important part of helping offenders prepare for paid work and their general resettlement in the community. Our team at Construct A Future have helped over 500 offenders into sustainable employment throughout their careers and support both the employer and offender equally.

Some  of these roles include:

  • Architects achieving first class honours degree
  • Reinforced Concrete Designer
  • Health & Safety Managers
  • Setting Out Engineers
  • Tradesmen
  • Labourers
  • Warehouse/depot workers
  • Machine operators
  • Supermarket roles
  • Catering workers/managers
  • Drivers
  • Teachers

“they do all they can to help and support us, giving their own time willingly. They have personally helped and supported me into not just employment but what I’m hoping will be a career.”

Would you like to give an offender a work experience opportunity in your work place?

Construct A Future works in partnership with HMP Rochester and HMP/YOI Cookham Wood to provide these valuable opportunities for offenders to gain work experience. We also owe a debt of thanks to Wates Family Enterprise Trust for providing funding and costs for delivering our programmes and all our employers that have provided placements.

We welcome any funding and support.
