Working Chance is a charity with a fresh approach to helping women offenders find rewarding, quality jobs. They offer a professional, first-class, bespoke employment service that assists women offenders in making the transition into the world of work and employment and each client and each employer are seen as unique to ensure successful matches. As well as finding their clients paid work; they also offer quality voluntary placements as stepping stones to paid employment and a career. The support they provide women experiencing barriers to work such as housing difficulties, debt and domestic violence also contributes to their success in helping women to find and sustain employment.
This approach has proved highly effective and the vast majority of clients have moved on to paid work once they have regained their confidence and life skills. Working Chance offers many services to ensure a smooth transition to work including careers guidance; one to one support; workshops; briefing the employer about the offending history; attending interviews with the women and supporting both employer and employee throughout the whole recruitment process and beyond.
