Call for evidence on supporting ex-offenders on their path to employment
Article by:Makbool Javaid |
The Cabinet Office has issued a call for evidence on supporting ex-offenders on their path to employment as research shows that having a job can significantly reduce someone’s chances of reoffending. The call for evidence has three themes: 1. What are employers doing, if anything, to create fair opportunities for ex-offenders to compete for jobs; 2.
