The Skill Mill is a social enterprise which provides employment opportunities for young people aged between sixteen and eighteen. We employ only ex-offenders, actively reducing reoffending whilst increasing engagement, participation, employability and educational levels of the young people to increase their life chances. In 9 years, The Skill Mill has employed 362 young people in the UK. Just 27 of those have been re-convicted. This means our re-conviction rate is just 7.4%, compared to a counter factual of 72% for young offenders with 11+ convictions.
