More than 8 million people of working age in the UK have a criminal conviction – a fifth of the available workforce. The biggest influencing factor in reducing re-offending is employment.
The Ban the Box Steering Group oversees and helps drive the campaign. It meets quarterly. We are currently seeking representatives from the Retail and Hospitality sectors. To find out more, contact Ryan Stockard.
We are very grateful to our funders the Department of Justice and Northstone, who are helping us launch Ban the Box in NI. We’re working with support from NIACRO and Equality Commission for NI to develop this exciting campaign.
