Beyond the Gate: Securing employment for offenders with mental health problems

Written by  Works for Freedom (30/11/99)

This paper outlines good practice in supporting people with mental health issues to find employment. It examines the outcomes of an employment programme organised via multi-agency partnerships. It concludes that, 'given the right approach, it is possible to help many more people with offending histories to get and maintain paid competitive employment' and gives recommendations on how to help achieve this, including that prisons and probation services need to be building better links with local employers.
