Saltbox's pioneering Restart service is partnering up with Connecting Choices to offer personal coaching and tailored 'accessibility to work' skills to ex-offenders in Stoke-on-Trent.
All too often, people leave prison with massive barriers to gaining work and finding housing, which leads them inevitably back into a precarious existence on the edges of society. However, with Restart's expertise in the field of rehabilitating ex-offenders back into the community, we are ideally placed to help people move into sustainable volunteering, education, training or employment. Support will be given to address any debt or housing issues and ensure clients have access to the correct benefits.
The ultimate goal is that they will increase in confidence, which in turn will help them to achieve fully independent living.
Can you be the personal coach who helps our clients gain that confidence? If yo think you can then download the job spec and send yor application including BOTH a cover letter and CV to HelenP@saltbox.org.uk by Monday 14 August. For any enquiries, please call Helen on 01782 207 200.
