We offered him intense support from his release and helped him to gradually turn his life around. We helped find work experience and Training when released. We then helped him find employment...when this didn't work out we continued to help him look for other employment. When he lost another job and he was going back to old ways we encouraged him not to give up and helped get some temporary work at ASDA. He enjoyed this and in the end was given a full-time contract from them and has since stayed out of trouble for the last 2 years. Aged 20 now his words were:
I don't know what I would have done if it weren't for Paul.
