Our rapidly changing employment landscape, including Brexit and the need to build back better following Covid-19, means employers need flexibility, diversity and loyalty. A skilled ex-offender workforce offers this and more.

92% of inclusive employers say that opening up their recruitment to include those with a conviction has enhanced their reputation.

In the uncertain times we find ourselves in, it is vital to support inclusive businesses who employ people with convictions.

We want this resource to benefit as many businesses as possible.

We invite our network to share the resource pack widely.
