Sam’s Probation Story

Listen to Sam’s story about how finding a job after prison with the probation service has helped him with his own rehabilitation.


Sam says he struggled to find a job at the end of an eight-year prison sentence for a drug related offence. Many employers shut the door in his face.

But while on probation, Kent, Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company gave him an opportunity to become one of their case support workers after a stint of volunteering with the service.

The opportunity has not only helped Sam with his own rehabilitation, but is also helping others to turn away from a life of crime.
