Growing for Good
A social enterprise aiming to reduce re-offending rates among prisoners through training and employment in horticulture.
We want people to be done with prison for good.
Female reoffending rates are now higher than males following a custodial/prison sentence, 58.2% versus 47.4%.
Reoffending after custody is on the increase in females, whilst reoffending in males with similar sentencing seems to be declining.
Two years after conviction or prison term, 50% of female offenders receive out-of-work benefits or struggle to earn annual minimum wage.
