An innovative approach to rehabilitation - The Clink Café

The Clink Charity’s sole aim is to reduce reoffending through the training and rehabilitation of prisoners. We work in partnership with HMPPS to run various projects within prisons: Clink Restaurants, Clink Events and Clink Gardens. All projects utilise our Five Step Programme to ensure that prisoners receive the support they need, not only while they are in prison, but also after release: Recruit – Train – Support – Employ – Mentor.
