Barclays Bank's recent partnership with DEC and UNICEF aims to help former addicts rebuild their life by first rebuilding their credit score. The merger offers those suffering from addiction access to loans and exclusive banking services that they would otherwise be unable to take part in.
Much like rehabilitated criminals, former addicts are often unable to rebuild their credit scores after breaking from their unhealthy habit. In an effort to help these individuals heal, this Barclays Bank, DEC and UNICEF partnership acts as a beacon of hope for those that may not have any other way of earning an income.
Once former addicts have regained a sustainable income and rebuilt their credit score, their likelihood of finding employment is sure to increase.
