I picked Gareth up and accompanied him to his interview for a fulltime job. He was dressed immacculately and had been getting ready for hours prior to me arriving. Although nervous he came across very well at the interview and has a start date of 1/6/15!
In custody Gareth demonstrated all the attributes we look for, and showed the desire and committment to change, therefore we are pleased to be supporting him on his journey to desistance.
He told me he is really looking forward to earning honest money and looking after his mum, who has stood by him throughout his times in prison. He said ” I can’t wait to be able to buy my mum something nice, instead of asking her to help me out all the time”.
