Handmade Alliance, textiles and rehabilitation

Prisoners from HMPS Brixton work with Handmade Alliance for UK first

We are extremely proud to announce that prisoners on day release from HMPS Brixton working with Handmade Alliance in our textiles workshop are the first in the UK to obtain City & Guilds qualifications within a working business.

As our team at Handmade Alliance is made up of people on the programme itself, everyone has an active part in our business success as well as their own personal success in gaining these qualifications. We are currently developing further training for prisoners and ex-prisoners to meet the regional shortfall in skilled machinists. We firmly believe this shortfall creates an opportunity for sustainable employment upon release and is a fantastic motivator during training and successful rehabilitation.
