We have had a report of a young man involved in door to door selling in the Watford area and saying he is an ex-offender working as part of a Probation scheme. He has some kind of an ID card and has been reported as being ‘pushy’ in saying he was trying to turn his life around and buying items from him would help him.
BeNCH would like to make it very clear this is nothing to do with us and we are not aware of any official schemes of this nature.
Should any members of the public experience something similar, we recommend this is reported to the local Police.
BeNCH recognises how gaining employment is often an important part of rehabilitation. We are keen to support any of our service users who are serving Community Orders, or who have been released from prison, into gaining suitable and sustainable employment.
