Case Study: Helped back into employment – after 17 years without work

An offender with previous convictions for drugs and theft, committed fraud and was sentenced to 180 hours of Community Payback. She attended her pre-placement meeting, where she declared she had an interest in gaining qualifications and employment, having not worked for 17 years since having children.

Following an Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) session, she was referred to a partner organisation that enrolled her on a plumbing course and the Construction Skills Certificate scheme. After completing both these full-time courses, she found and has sustained full-time employment. She has not offended again.
