Fine Cell Work: the social enterprise that trains prisoners in paid, skilled needlework.
Teaching prisoners creative sewing boosts their employability and self-confidence, say those at Fine Cell Work.
The Fine Cell Work team train offenders to do high-quality, creative needlework in their cells. The aim is that the work helps foster hope, discipline and employability. Those at the social enterprise want to help people to finish their sentences with skills, money earned and saved, and the self-belief that will help them avoid re-offending, as well as guiding them towards training and support on release.
