Komplexní proces práce s odsouzeným a propuštěným
In cooperation with the General Directorate of the Prison Service of the Czech Republic we implement a number of projects in Czech prisons with the aim of gradually reducing the level of recidivism in the Czech Republic. Thanks to our many years of experience working with persons serving a prison sentence we have created a comprehensive process that enables us to help these people reintegrate into society. Our main specialisation in this respect lies in our expert team of debt and legal counsellors, trainers with years of experience and employment counsellors. In this comprehensive assistance process we primarily help our clients resolve their financial (debt) situations, including the option of drawing up and filing an insolvency proposal during a prison sentence and after release.
We collaborate with the DP WORK s.r.o. recruitment and training agency to also provide our clients with employment and accommodation, immediately after their release from prison.
At the same time, this entire process involves countless other interlinked activities that we carry out actually in prisons. These particularly include retraining courses (such as forklift licences, welding courses, etc.) and employment counselling and diagnostics. While in prison our clients can also complete training courses focusing on IT basics, financial literacy, communication skills, etc. These activities are designed with a view to developing their personal and professional skills and increasing their chances on the labour market.
In 2019 we also launched a unique project entitled "Application of the Good-Lives Model in the Czech Prison System", involving a total of 6 pilot prisons: Jiřice, Kuřim, Kynšperk nad Ohří, Pardubice, Stráž pod Ralskem and Vinařice. (More information)
