The Hard Yard


Our purpose is to provide as many opportunities + jobs as possible to people leaving prison. Although many people develop a passion for fitness + gain relevant qualifications inside prison, this rarely translates into a job on the outside. Only 26% of people leaving prison find work in the first year of release. This isn’t surprising; over half of employers say they wouldn’t consider hiring someone who has spent time behind bars.We believe mistakes in your past shouldn’t hold you back from opportunities in the future. So in 2016 The Hard Yard was created.
