Fine Cell Work is a social enterprise that trains prisoners in paid, skilled, creative needlework — undertaken in the long hours spent in their cells — to foster hope, discipline and self esteem. This helps them to connect to society and to leave prison with the confidence and financial means to stop offending.
Fine Cell Work is alone in finding a way for prisoners to occupy their “cell-time” in activity which is not only creative but also generates a steady income. The pursuit of skill becomes an alternative way of life to the lack of opportunity and freedom in prison. It offers a chance to internalise a work ethic and is entirely voluntary, with prisoners’ success depending on the time they choose to put in.
"I would like the people reading this to know Fine Cell Work can lead into new areas of work… Meeting guys that FCW has worked with in their office – you see they do have a certain confidence about them… you see there really is something out there for you, ways of using skills you’ve learned inside. As time goes on I know I can do other things I hadn’t done in the past. It’s been an eye opener and it’s made my life more fulfilled." - Testimonial story from Ian
