Extern Works (European Social Fund project)

Extern Works is a project organised by Extern Group as part of the European Social Fund. It is aimed at:

  • medium to high risk offenders - current and non current
  • medium to high risk offenders on probationary license
  • medium health offenders in secure units
  • homeless individuals
  • refugees
