Although Tony has been out of prison several months, while inside he liked what Tempus Novo stood for and said he wanted to help. Today he met us for a coffee and told us how he has been talking to guys in the hostel he resides at. He has been actively recruiting those ex-offenders who want to change for good, and who are desperate for that opportunity to prove they can work hard and provide great value for money to an employer.
It was good to see Tony looking well, keeping out of trouble himself and doing something positive with his time. He gave us the C.V and details of three guys who have approached him for work, and to his credit he has spent time with them helping them put the C.V’s together. Moving forward I see Tony as an integral part of Tempus Novo, meeting guys at the prison gates and supporting / mentoring them in the early days of their release.
