UK energy distribution company, UK Power Networks, is committed to supporting the government's rehabilitation agenda, believing that offering opportunities of employment to offenders reduces the likelihood of reoffending and provides a route back into society.
This commitment has been demonstrated on both a local and national level – UK Power Networks offers employment to offenders on release, improves employability prospects through advice and provision of equipment and fosters links with establishments and businesses that could also offer employment and/or support.
Could you play a role in tackling this social issue?
UK Power Networks invites Haverhill business owners to HMP Highpoint’s fourth ‘Breaking the Cycle’ Employers Forum Event. Building on links that have already been made with the business community, the discussion will focus on how HMP Highpoint – in partnership with local employers – may develop these relationships further, and enhance the opportunities and prospects of offenders once released into the community. It will also highlight what organisations and businesses are already doing to contribute to ‘Breaking the Cycle’, reducing reoffending and enabling the government to demonstrate the benefits of corporate social responsibility.
The forum event is aimed at businesses of all levels in Haverhill and the local area, ranging from those who are completely new to the agenda and want to learn more to businesses that have been supporting the agenda for years.
It will also provide a variety of networking opportunities for attendees, enabling members to realise the potential benefits that can comes with working with offenders, both pre and post release.
Doors open at 9:30am on March 8th 2012, with the meeting starting from 10am until midday at:
UK Power Networks’ Training Centre
Bury St Edmunds
