How people can join us

Previous construction industry experience is not required to join any of our training programmes.

You can access our training courses in one of two ways:

To take advantage of the opportunity to get skilled in preparation for release applications should be lodged with the wing officer in excess of 3 months prior to release date.

– will be leaving custody soon, or have already left

– are a relative of someone or connected with someone who has been in custody

  • “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
