Paul was given financial support from The Hardman Trust, to help him get the tools and training he needed to find work after prison.
With his plan and our support, he was able to find work within days of leaving prison, and now has secure housing and a steady income. He’s not returned to crime, and has rebuilt his relationships with family and friends. He told us:
“Getting help from The Hardman Trust was tremendously uplifting. It felt like a welcome back to society and the promise of being viewed as a human being once again. It gave me a sense of achievement knowing you were willing to give me a life changing helping hand. It allowed me to put the past behind me and look positively ahead and plan my future. This is a fresh start for me and I can finally see a bright future for myself in the coming years. The Hardman Trust is a godsend for prisoners like myself. Thank you.”
