CleanStart is a ‘social enterprise business’ created within Trafford Housing Trust (THT), that operates as a distinct trading business within THT. CleanStart was set up in August 2008 with the remit to clear and clean empty properties within THT’s housing stock in preparation for relet, repair or disposal.

CleanStart employs Prolific and other Priority Offenders (PPOs), to carry out the work. These ex-offenders receive:

  • training and, in some instances, obtain qualifications during their time in the program; intensive offender management- managers carry out supervision, ensuring the exoffenders are not engaging in activities or lifestyle choices that could lead to recidivism, and on-going advice and support- to help the ex-offenders with any problems they may be experiencing.

Since start-up 47 ex-offenders have been employed on the fixed term work programme, of which 22 secured permanent employment from the programme. CleanStart has expanded its operation in terms of reach and service provision, clearing and cleaning properties, waste removal, home removals, environmental services and gardening services.
