It was win, win here at The Connection last week- five of our clients completed a five day workshop with the charity and social enterprise Bounce Back, and our meeting rooms got a lovely lick of paint.
The five day course gave our clients the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and tangible skills, which they will now be able to use moving forward to find jobs or further work experience. Three of them are now looking towards doing further six week course with Bounce Back in conjunction with Crisis.
Bounce Back are a social enterprise and charity who normally work within prisons teaching prisoners the skills needed to work in the construction industry, but are just starting to work with homeless people. This pilot project was a great success and we are hoping it will be the first of many.
From our point of view it was a delight to have five lively faces brightening up our staff area for the week. And the meetings rooms look amazing!
So a big thank to Bounce Back but more importantly to the clients for their hard work and dedication.
