Why Get Involved?

The Clink Charity has the sole aim of reducing reoffending through training and placing graduates into jobs within the hospitality industry, which has a skills shortage.

  • Build your company’s corporate social responsibility by supporting the training and rehabilitation of prisoners.
  • Discover great talent – we train prisoners to an exceptionally high standard; all of the food in our restaurants is cooked from scratch using the latest techniques and equipment.
  • Clink graduates leave prison having gained nationally recognised City & Guilds NVQs as well as hands-on practical experience in a working restaurant.
  • Help to change the lives of the prisoners and their families.

The Institute of Hospitality has released a 2015 management guide on employing ex-offenders, which features practical advice and information from The Clink Charity’s chief executive Chris Moore. The new guide also offers hospitality employers further reading on the benefits of employing ex-offenders and what to consider when making the decision. Download the guide here for free.

Top chefs and industry players, such as Albert Roux OBE and Giorgio Locatelli, who were invited to become Clink Ambassadors, kindly donate their time and expertise by holding regular workshops both in the kitchens and front-of-house.

Ambassadors benefit the charity enormously, adding credibility to The Clink Restaurants and helping to bring the issue of rehabilitation into the public eye.
