The construction industry is forecasting a major skills shortage in the coming years. Now is the time to look towards a group of unique individuals who are often overlooked.
The BOSS Project is a ground-breaking initiative run by The Wallich, an established homelessness charity in South Wales. Its goal is to re-integrate ex-offenders into their communities by providing skills, qualifications, confidence and on-going support to find employment.
Our dedicated team delivers a programme of learning which is tailored to the construction industry. BOSS aims to remove the barriers to work that ex-offenders face and eradicate the stigma of a criminal record.
Employment is the number one factor in reducing re-offending and ex-offenders are proven to be productive employees. However, only 12% of employers have knowingly employed someone with a criminal record.
