Celebrating 98% Occupancy Rate For Our Restart Properties

Posted in Saltbox News on

We continue to be really encouraged by the work of Saltbox's Restart team.

Restart supports local ex-offenders offering an opportunity to rehabilitate their lives. We currently support over 70 clients & manage a housing stock of +30 properties. As well as providing employment for 20 staff, Restart is one of very few organisations which support prolific offenders.

Last year we supported over 300 local men & women. The national re-offending rate for the cohort of both prolific & generic clients was 50%. However, Restart's 2015 re-offending rate was less than 7% !!! So far in 2016 the re-offending rate has dropped even further to 5%.

Last week the team celebrated an amazing 98% occupancy rate for all our properties. Well done to a brilliant, hard-working team!

Dear Saltbox. Thank you for all you do in the city. Thank you for your faithfulness to your call. We pray God will keep increasing your influence in society.
