Our new Dry Lining Training Course has now commenced in HMP Brixton with participants embarking upon the introduction and theory side pending final completion of the bespoke training centre.

This is the first time a Dry LScreen Shot 2015-05-18 at 11.38.56ining course will run in a London prison in part due to the practical logistics of transporting the vast amounts of materials required and also the cost. Thanks to some phenomenal support from Knauff and Encon and others featured here it has become possible for us to open the centre and offer inmates of Brixton the opportunity to learn this sought after skill.

The programme is targeted to train 70 participants per academic year and offers those referred whilst in custody the opportunity to participate in the CITB C Skills course in Dry Lining to Diploma Level 2.  Having gained a construction skills qualification whilst in custody, cohorts are well positioned to enter the construction industry work force immediately upon release. This is a major step in bridging the gap from prison to employment as we are further supported by construction industry partners.

 

  • “Bounce Back is, above all, about its people. What is known is that a job and income on release is fundamental to success in coping with day to day life and preventing re-offending. Our drive to change perception in employers and clients is reaping rewards and our professional team is working around London and the Home Counties.

    The mutual trust and respect at the core of our values reflects the growing belief in giving social enterprises and socially disadvantaged people an opportunity to succeed and thrive. We are just one stage in this development, the determination of our participants to start a new life and move on is a formidable ingredient in the recipe for success."

    Francesca Findlater, Founder/Chairman
