Langley House Trust is delighted to be partnering with Clean Sheet, a charity which helps offenders to get back into employment, to run a ‘Ways to Work’ programme.
The programme, taking place at Langley’s Taunton project, will help men who are trying to turn their lives around after prison, improve motivation, confidence and skill when applying for jobs.
It will also provide participants access to a network of employers who are willing to give employment opportunities to people with a criminal record.
Clean Sheet has had a long-standing partnership with Langley’s sister charity, Kainos Community, delivering the programme within prison – but this is only the second time that Langley and Clean Sheet have delivered ‘Ways to Work’ in the community together. The approach was first piloted in one of London projects last year.
Funding has been granted by the by the Commissioner’s Community Action Fund from the Police Community Trust. This is part of the Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner’s initiative to reduce reoffending and crime.
