Incentives in prison's; but.... - From an ex prisoner

No offence to the Justice Secretary; David Gauke; on the latest about prison's and giving prisoners incentives etc; but; incentives are all well and good inside; but; what happens when prisoners are released? I see no incentive to go back in to the free world!!!!
I was released from jail last year and I will be brutally; brutally; honest with you; it is a miracle I am still out here in the free world because I am being passed from pillar to post with probation; and finding work is proving to be impossible. What has the UK got to offer ex prisoners? I can't see any incentive out here. Sorry.
