January Business Lunch
Our venue today was The Clink Restaurant in Brixton Prison and the chefs and waiters were prisoners. 49% of prisoners released in the UK re-offend within the first year and for those serving sentences of less than 12 months this increases to 61%. It is recognised that the record level of inmates in prison is not helping to reduce crime. The Clink, who are members of LSCC, aim to reduce re-offending rates of ex-offenders by training and placing graduates upon their release into employment in the hospitality industry and so assist in their rehabilitation.
