The latest Justice Data Lab statistics show that offenders who took part in the pioneering Clink restaurant programme, which provides training in catering, customer service and cleaning for prisoners, were less likely to reoffend than a group of similar offenders.

The Clink provides training courses at HMP Cardiff, HMP Brixton and HMP High Down, giving prisoners the skills and opportunities they need in preparation for release and helping to make our streets safer by reducing reoffending and cutting crime.
