Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce and HM Prison/YOI Drake Hall would like to invite Chambers members to an Employment Engagement Event at the Prison/YOI. Have you got a progressive business? Ever thought about utilising a large skill base to enhance your business and work on your social responsibility? HM Prison/YOI Drake Hall seeks to reduce reoffending amongst its population by working to develop skills and attitudes whilst providing the provision of purposeful activity and the attainment of qualifications whilst in custody. HM Prison/YOI Drake Hall has successful relationships with employers, who utilise the skills of low risk women, to offer employment opportunities near the end of their sentence and on release.

In the past 12 months, a Greggs Academy and a Halfords Academy have been launched at Drake Hall, offering training and employment opportunities for women. Listen to the benefits of businesses working with Drake Hall who have employed women and experience first-hand what gaining employment means to women and their families. You can receive a guided tour of HMP/YOI Drake Hall and over lunch, you can enjoy networking opportunities with both women, prison partners and fellow Chambers members. Come and join us for what promises to be a fascinating visit. Please note that places are limited. Book now to avoid disappointment!

You will need to bring photo ID to verify your identity (valid Passport or UK Driving Licence). Mobile communication devices including phones and tablets can’t be taken inside HMP/YOI Drake Hall.
