With many years experience working in local gaols,our successful workshops explore and develop a prisoners or ex offender’s strengths and abilities, establishing  positive thinking strategies and coping skills for daily life on the outside 

Our aim is to;

  • Inspire hope and shift mindsets, so goals and a pro social life after prison can be achieved.

  • Practical skills in seeking employment

  • Re establishing a meaningful life beyond Gaol.

 "WHY "
Knowing want you want and why, instils self motivation based on a person's individual goals and enables the participant to plan positive actions they will take to a pro social life.This interactive motivational session also challenges false thinking and fears, and instils self motivation, self control and rational decision-making based on a participant's "WHY" in life.

Moving Forward

Work Ready

Know my USP (Unique Selling Point)

  • A high percentage of job seekers can’t answer the basic question “tell me about yourself?" This is even harder when you have been in prison. Prison is just one part of someone's life story. Participants will be coached, interviewed, then evaluated to ensure they know how to sell themselves in an interview and answer the difficult question.

 

Effective Cold Calling

  • Whether it’s finding a place to stay or job seeking. Cold calling by phone or in person takes a specific technique to get results quickly. Don't cause unnecessary hardship from lack of knowledge in this area.

Personal Marketing and Presentation

  • First impressions count when going for accommodation, or a job interview. A Personal Stylist will advise on dressing for an individual’s body shape, colour suitability and general grooming, nail care, hair and hygiene basics.

  • Studies show that changing physiology can change the mental state of a person. Personal presentation is used as a tool to regain pride and dignity and to boost self-confidence and self-belief. 

  • Budgeting on the outside is a practical life-skill session.
