Working Chance is an award-winning charity and the UK’s only specialist recruitment consultancy for women with criminal convictions and young women leaving care.
CWN is proud to support Working Chance for the second year running (2016-2017). Click here to find out how our members can engage and partner with Working Chance.
Since 2009, Working Chance has changed the lives of over 600 women by supporting them into quality, paid employment and helping them to overcome any barriers to finding work. Working Chance’s innovative approach dramatically reduces re-offending and helps the women and their families move from lives of exclusion to lives of contribution – breaking the intergenerational cycle of disadvantage and crime.
“We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen as City Women’s Network (CWN) charity of the year for the second year running. It’s incredible that women who are at the top of their game in the City want to help those that have been behind bars. Our candidates continue to be judged long after they have served their sentences and struggle to find progressive employers who will look beyond the conviction.
From everyone here at Working Chance, thank you CWN for understanding that all our candidates want to do is learn from their mistakes and turn them into opportunities for positive change.”
