Brand new, independent data reveals the success of prisoner rehabilitation scheme, The Clink Charity, with the reoffending rate of 2014/15 graduates having improved by 50%.

Conducted by Justice Data Lab (JDL) and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), the report compared ex-offenders who trained at The Clink's four restaurants for 6-18 months with those who hadn’t between 2010 and 2015.

Praising the charity for achieving a “statistically significant result,” the companies found that 2014/15 Clink graduates had a 10.7% reoffending rate compared to the control groups 20.9%.

Chief executive of The Clink Charity, Chris Moore, said: “Clink is delighted that these new results have shown a reduction in reoffending against comparative groups. 

“JDL identifying that ‘prisoners who took part in the programme were less likely to reoffend than those who did not’ is testament to the dedicated work carried out by The Clink Charity in partnership with HMPPS (Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service).

“The Clink offers more than just training. We provide a five-step integrated programme for our trainees that consists of not only the recruitment and training while they are in prison, but also support, employment and mentoring upon release.

“All five elements are key to reducing reoffending, as it is provides graduates with the assistance they need to readjust back into society.”
