The core objective of PACE Social Enterprise is to create jobs for
people who have experienced prison or probation and find it difficult to secure
employment. Like other businesses, we trade in goods and services on an ongoing
basis, however, any surplus we make is re-invested to create more jobs. Our goal is to prepare people for
progressing into mainstream employment and also to positively help change the
attitudes of potential employers and communities towards former prisoners, who
want and are trying to turn their lives around.
