At only 20 years’ old, Prince came to Springboard with a prison record and lack of any real work experience. Determined to turn his life around, he needed help with his confidence and skills.
Being part of the group training, Prince felt he was a world away from the life he’d known before and, following the completion of his work placement at the Royal Automobile Club, he was offered a full time commis waiter position.
Michael was released from prison after graduating from The Clink restaurant within HMP High Down. Serving his second sentence, Michael blamed his lack of education and offences on his unstable upbringing. Upon his release, Springboard provided support and mentoring, arranging a trial shift at the Grosvenor Victoria Thistle Hotel for a Meetings and Events position.
Michael has since started work full time and is loving every minute of it, as he turns his life around for him and his young family.
