Background

Working Chance, a recruitment agency for ex-offenders in North London, helps women with a criminal record back into employment. The charity believes that by working with women who others have given up on and who are often mothers, they help to break the cycle of reoffending in future generations.

Since it was founded in 2007 Working Chance has made an outstanding impact on the lives of women in London with convictions who are looking for work. A specialist recruitment agency, they work to help ex-offenders get back into employment while also supporting them to overcome hurdles they face as they reintegrate into society after life in prison.
