Re-offending rates reduced by 87.5%

The Clink Charity’s sole aim is to reduce reoffending through the training and rehabilitation of prisoners. We work in partnership with HMPS to run various projects within prisons: Clink Restaurants, Clink Events and Clink Gardens. All projects utilise our Five Step Programme to ensure that prisoners receive the support they need, not only while they are in prison, but also after release:
Recruit – Train – Support – Employ – Mentor

Why Rehabilitation?

Prisoners make all food from scratch

The issue of reoffending has become one of the most pressing challenges facing society today.

45.2% of adults reoffend within one year of being released. For those serving sentences of less than 12 months this increases to 57.5%.

It is now recognised that the record levels of inmates in prison is not helping to reduce crime.

The sole aim of The Clink Charity is to reduce reoffending rates of ex-offenders by training prisoners and placing graduates into employment in the hospitality and horticulture industries upon release.  Since launching, the charity has achieved incredible results. The latest statistics are currently being independently examined and will be published later this year.
