I spent some of my childhood as an unpaid apprentice in my fathers Painting andamp; Decorating business in Old Trafford, Manchester. So I was intrigued to learn about the work of BOUNCE BACK, particularly as I live close to Brixton Prison where this Social Enterprise charity operates a successful training scheme for prisoners plus employment opportunities and mentoring when their trainees are released. It is a real second-chance that is making a difference to peoples lives.
Francesca Findlater, CEO at BOUNCE BACK, said Helping people re-engage with the communityBounce Back acts as a bridge between prison and full time employment.
This support has also dramatically reduced re-offending rates and makes our communities safer too! The feed-back from clients and companies offering painting andamp; decorating projects has been very positive, especially about the standard of work and support from the BOUNCE BACK team.
I am very pleased to announce that Buildingtalk are offering its support for BOUNCE BACK and we want to encourage the building industry to support them too. They have an impressive portfolio of successful projects completed. Do get in touch with BOUNCE BACK if you have a requirement for Painting andamp; Decorating.
Francesca Findlater, CEO at BOUNCE BACK 14th October 2014
Thanks a million for the support this is fab so grateful and well certainly keep you updated. We have found a new space in Brixton for our community training centre which we are working on getting funded so we can start as soon as possible.
