Family support - from Lucy

Dear Prisoners Families Blog. 
I have read some of the posts on ex offenders and jobs. I met my partner when he was in prison through writing to him.
He too found a job through an agency and is still working full time today.
It hasn't been without its problems though because at first he could not understand why people worked for very little money. It sounds crazy doesn't it but the fact is he had never been educated or encouraged when growing up. His family, parents, were drug addicts and his upbringing wasn't great as you can imagine. Now he is thriving in his job and says he is proud of what he has achieved and is still achieving today. I am always here to support him and with hard work and commitment it can be done. Thanks for listening. Best wishes and kind regards, Lucy.
