Vision Support Services, a global textiles organisation, has for the first time been awarded a significant contract with the Ministry of Justice. Vision will be supplying various fabric types to prisons across the UK. This, alongside recent wins for other government and public sector organisations, highlights Vision’s strengths within the public sector market and their continuing commitment to “Quality.Guaranteed.”
Vision will supply prison workshops with various fit for purpose fabric types, to be made into items such as towels, clothing and bed sheets by prison inmates. The workshop will build the inmates’ skill base, whilst the produced textiles are personally used throughout the prison. This helps to support the National Offenders Management Service (NOMS) programme, to provide offenders with useful skills which will help improve their chance of employment and reintegration into society upon their release.
Laurie Thomas, Managing Director of Vision Support Services said:
“We are delighted to have secured this contract. This win is a credit to the both the commercial capability and the social and ethical values of Vision Group; and further demonstrates that Vision can compete successfully in today’s global market through the commitment and expertise of both our UK and overseas employees and suppliers.
We look forward to a successful association with the Ministry of Justice and with NOMS in support of their prisoner rehabilitation programme and an ultimate reduction in the level of re-offending.”
