Working Chance

Working Chance is the UK’s only employment charity solely for women with convictions. They help women leaving the criminal justice system to develop the confidence, skills and self-belief they need to overcome any barriers to their employment.

They work with businesses of all sizes across industries to find opportunities for women that align with their skills and aspirations. Since 2009, Working Chance has supported thousands of women into employment and many more on their journeys towards financial independence. With their help, no woman will be held back by her past, and will get the support, encouragement and opportunities she needs to rebuild her life and thrive.

They offer one-to-one support with job search and applications, as well as free workshops on topics including:

  • CV writing
  • Interview skills
  • Confidence and self-belief
  • DBS checks and disclosing your criminal conviction to employers

Support is open to all women with a past conviction.
