Did you know that helping to reduce re-offending could also support your business’ future expansion?

APM works with businesses throughout the UK as part of the Employers' Forum for Reducing Re-offending (EFFRR).

The Forum is an innovative employer engagement programme, designed to improve both the recruitment practices of employers and the job prospects of offenders.

It supports employers in attracting, recruiting and retaining candidates with an offending background, whether in prison or in the community.

The HMPPS-backed initiative is supported by the Minister for Justice and chaired by Roisin Currie, People Director at Greggs.

It includes representatives from local and national businesses including Cisco, Timpson, Marks & Spencer, Halfords, Dunelm, Willmott Dixon and Recycling Lives. 

Together the Forum is giving employers the opportunity to access an untapped talent pool, enable better lives and support change in our society.
