Each year, in England and Wales approximately 66,000 offenders return to society from prison and almost two-thirds will re-offend within two years - with unemployment seen as the most significant barrier to successful reintegration. This report investigates ways of encouraging the employment of ex-offenders, as a way of reducing these figures as well as helping to address the skills shortage.
