The Clink Charity

The Clink Charity

How Does It Work?

Prisoners are given unique training opportunities and are placed into roles located within their prison across 4 sites in the UK. The skills they learn are varied and range from horticulture, to hospitality. These are then broken down into further roles across food preparation and serving paying customers, as an example. The skills taught are specifically chosen so that qualifications, such as NVQs can be gained which in turn make ex-offenders more desirable to employers outside of prison when they have served their sentence.

Where does Dennys Brands come in?

You may well ask! We manufacture and sponsor the embroidered uniforms needed to help make the unique training scheme safe and in turn give the participants a sense of discipline and team belonging.

The results? Reoffending rate is reduced by 49.6%

Once the prisoners have finished their training and sentence, The Clink helps place them in employment through an extensive reach of contacts. The ex-offenders are then mentored to ensure they adhere to the skills and values they have learnt throughout the programme. The results fed back to The Clink have been fantastic, with over 1,800 prisoners trained to date with a reduction in reoffending of 49.6% achieved too. Fewer criminal re-offenders means less cost to society and fewer future victims too.
