I was very honoured to be invited to the first Mates on the Move graduation ceremony.
Mates on the Move is a social enterprise of Prisoners Aid, training and assisting ex-prisoners back into the workforce.
The biggest challenge faced by ex-offenders is getting a job to enable them to gain income, housing, establishing new networks and move forward with their lives. Mates on the Move helps with training and employment for ex-offenders in the growing transport industry.
It was great the meet and chat with the graduates. Congratulations and well done!
