Bounce Back – Help us to help others

No Going Back is a successful Livery Companies initiative to reduce-offending through training, support, employment and ultimately, housing if needed. More than just funding, the Livery members are invited to help with volunteering as well as jobs through their networks.

Giving your time to work with participants on their journey from prison into employment is so important to them and rewarding for you. There are numerous opportunities for volunteers to get involved in so many ways from
mentoring, CV writing to training and beyond. If you have a skill or passion that you think would help someone, we can match individual skills and the time you can give with the need.

People leaving prison are an untapped labour force and getting a job on release reduces the likelihood of them re-offending by 50%. The No Going Back team work with the participants on the programme matching their
skills to jobs on offer and ensuring they receive the right qualifications and training to be as prepared as possible. Futhermore the team fully supports the candidate and the employer throughout the process to give confidence and
ensure it is as seemless as possible for both sides. We prepare people for work in a range of industries including roles in the built environment, HGV driving, cleaning, warehouse, catering and beyond. If you or an organisation you know have jobs for someone who has left prison, please get in touch.

“Some of these people are highly gifted, they just got on the wrong track”
