Initiative launched to help employ ex-offenders

A new campaign has launched aiming to raise awareness of the potential of ex-offenders in the capital, and those recovering from addiction.

The Forward Trust says three quarters of people released from prison have no job to go to, one of the biggest reasons for reoffending.

The More Than My Past initiative aims to address that figure.

We've spoken to the Vauxhall based charity, and one ex-offender, who has gone on to create his own fitness firm, and book.
