Ei Group and The Clink Charity
Ei Group has strengthened its social responsibility efforts across the wider sector through a corporate partnership with The Clink.
The charity aims to reduce reoffending by helping prisoners to achieve qualifications as chefs in the hospitality sector, upon their release.
The Clink provides individuals from all backgrounds, opportunities that can lead to meaningful employment.
The Clink currently trains up to 200 prisoners a day to gain their Level 2 NVQs in Food Service, Food Preparation, Food Hygiene and Horticulture.
It operates four training restaurants in partnership with Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service, along with a training kitchen, gardens, a café and an events catering business.
Skilled labour in the hospitality sector remains a concern with chefs singled out as remaining in demand.
The partnership clearly demonstrates Ei Group’s focus on promoting hospitality as a career of choice as well as its effect in transforming lives.
