Head of Decorating

One of Bounce Back’s first participants “Dabs” now heads up the Painting and Decorating Team. Having been through the entire programme he became senior trainer both in and out of custody before progressively developing his role to become the contracts manager for the commercial business.

A desire to continually expand his qualifications means he is not only a highly accomplished decorator in his own right he is also an Ambassador for the organisation engaging funders and supporters to help spread the word.




Senior Site Supervisor

Ali joined in March 2011 and is one of our senior site supervisors. Having developed an interest in painting and decorating when he completed the City and Guilds level 1 and 2 in custody his constant desire to upskill he has resulted in numerous further qualifications. Ali has attained his SMSTS & SSSTS and has a PASMA card for working on Mobile Elevation Working Platforms or Cherry pickers. He is often requested by repeat customers.



Contracts Manager

Vincent participated in our course in HMP Brixton achieving his Lvls 1 and 2 in P&D. With a previous degree in Electrical Engineering and Construction Management he strove to learn more and on moving to Stanford Hill he furthered his qualifications with Plumbing (Diploma Lvl 2) and Bricklaying. Having recently assisted in the attainment of his SSSTS and SMTS Vincent is a well qualified team member.

Wojciech Charko

Senior painter

Wojciech came initially from St Mungo’s and is developing into one of our hardest working decorators, always keen to work and get stuck in, nothing is too much trouble and he expects those around him to work equally as hard.



  • “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
