A social enterprise production company that uses prisoners to help make promotional reports, CDs, training DVDs and reports will be launched on Social Enterprise Day tomorrow.
Inside Job Productions uses prisoners as assistants on its commissions and reinvests its profits into media projects in prisons. The company has been set up by educational media consultancy Media for Development.
It employs graduates from a course in digital media run at Downview Women's Prison in Surrey. Prisoners come to the firm's London office on day release and return to the prison every evening.
"With the current massive focus on engaging employers and reducing re-offending through resettlement,
we provide the prisoners we employ with the tools that prepare them practically for release," said a spokeswoman.
