Bristol Together CIC was launched in October 2011 as a social business; we buy refurbish and sell empty properties. Our aim is to create full-time jobs for people who have been in prison.
A criminal record can be a huge obstacle to securing employment. We give people another chance; providing training and support through mentors dedicated to seeing employees succeed.
We have already helped over 60 people into work, and only one person has re-offended in that time. We expect that we will continue to see very low levels of re-offending amongst our employees – testimony to the impact we are having.
