This week we have had some pretty difficult situations to deal with, but then when you are working with ex-offenders it goes with the territory. Our support doesn’t stop once in employment and although this is one of our USP’s, it comes at a price.
Two of our graduates have had partner issues. Fortunately because we have a unique relationship with all of our graduates, we were notified by them and were able to help. One we helped with sorting alternative accommodation and by offering a listening ear, and the other we liaised with his employer and notified his probation officer of his change of address.
Doesn’t sound much, but it doesn’t take much for these people to be knocked off course and this would lead to disaster. As it turns out they are both still going to work and have a roof over their heads.
Fingers crossed for this weeks events!
