Womens Work


As we continue to deliver amazing employment work with our incredible women, we are working extra hard to ensure we never have to turn a women away due to funding issues.





 

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding from The National Lottery’s Community Fund to support our Women’s Work programme. This funding will allow us to support any women leaving custody, returning to London and wanting tailored and quality employment support. This funding is really important as it shouldn’t depend on a women’s postcode, age or licence conditions to determine whether or not she gets support she deserves.  

 

 

At the end of last year we took part in an Employer Day at HMP East Sutton Park. A number of our employers, including the Department of Transport, Sainsbury’s, Kier, Ice Cleaning and Elite Rail were all in attendance to talk about the talented women they have previously employed and to offer further opportunities. Annie Gale from Cook chaired the morning and invited us to visit Cook and find out more about the Raw talent programme.

 

Since this event, Elite Rail has employed 3 women from the prison on Release on Temporary licence (ROTL) and Thames Water hired a woman, on release, as an administrator.  

 

 

AFC are working with an Energy Advisory service to recruit two women, leaving custody, to work as Home Energy Advisors. We are really excited about these opportunities that will be well paid and allow for home based, office based or hybrid working. Any woman interested in these roles can contact us at info@afairerchance.co.uk
