We Are Straightline #15 Setting Up a Business

nterprise guru, Jenny Matthews works with women at HMP Styal, helping them gain the right skills to start their own businesses. She tells us why self-employment after prison can be a great alternative to working for someone else. We hear from Catrin Aherne, General Manager of The Clink Restaurant at HMP Styal about the work they do in supporting people who want to start a business in the catering industry and two former prisoners, LJ Flanders and Ilario Guidu, share their inspirational stories of business success.

We Are Straightline is your guide to life after prison. People inside prison can listen to the show on National Prison Radio 12pm and 6pm Fridays, repeated again 2pm on Sundays, so tell them to get involved!
