LandWorks, A Route to Resettlement
LandWorks is a work-based training scheme providing a supported route back into the community for current and ex-offenders. Based on the vibrant Dartington estate, work-based training goes hand-in-hand with developing life and social skills. Through being involved in a positive and non-judgemental workplace, trainees develop responsibility, self-belief and confidence. These vital tools give trainees the ability to choose a life away from offending, to find a job and to play a positive role in community life. The project works with men on day-release from local prison HMP Channings Wood, and other men and women serving sentences in the community.
Chris has been involved in the
project from its conception in late 2011. In 1988 Chris founded Greenlands
Landscaping, based in Totnes and employing up to 14 people. From 1995 Chris
started to employ people with, drug and alcohol issues; this progressed to
working with offenders and then prolific offenders, approximately 30% of the
workforce. This ultimately led to his development of the LandWorks project.
