Bounce Back Foundation
Bounce Back is a charity and a painting and decorating social enterprise focussed on training and employing ex-offenders.
We start in prison where we interview potential participants and work with them up to release when they come and join us. We then train and support them to get all the qualifications needed to work on any site and be self-employed, after which we give them paid employment in our painting and decorating enterprise.
We believe fervently that everyone has an ability to change and deserves a second chance. We also seek to change perception.
Thanks to the support of many we have thrived. We have been able to buy ‘starter kits’ to equip individuals in their work, a van to get our teams to jobs, and even things as simple as oyster cards and phone cards that are needed to support people when they leave prison.
Our objective is to stop re-offending and reduce crime, and we have been successful. Against the national average of 60% re-offending our rate is only 10%.
Please help us to do more.
