Barlinnie inmates to build Glasgow social housing through £2 million CIC Bond

Full story click here:

In total 50 ex-offenders will be given paid work and a further 50 current offenders, serving sentences in HMP Barlinnie, given unpaid work experience and taught construction skills such as brick laying, plastering, carpentry, painting and decoration as part of the project.

Up to 40 new affordable homes will be built with the help of the offenders who will gain valuable work experience whilst also learning skills that may help them reduce the likelihood of reoffending on release.
