"If Alanis Morissette was writing ‘Ironic’ in 2017, she’d include a line about smashing your phone screen. Brilliant company Cracked It trains vulnerable young people to repair them. So they’re the noble choice next time you drop your mobile on a night out."
"29 percent of people have a smashed smartphone screen and three out of four don't bother getting it repaired for six months or at all, because the options are too inconvenient. But Cracked It makes it easy and quick. And trains and hires ex-offenders or young people at risk of offending."
"Cracked It supports young people to engage with employment by demonstrating that the alluring elements of offending - income, belonging and self-worth - can be found through legitimate work."
"Enter "Cracked It" - an innovative business that teaches young offenders ... to fix cracked smartphones, boosting former inmates' self esteem and confidence in the process.
" [The] team are expanding... especially via in-house clinics, setting up stalls in the lobbies or cafeterias of major organisations to save employees' time."
"Disrupting the industry"
“We cannot just repeat what has gone before. Social enterprises such as Cracked It allow us to lock on the skills we need to engage and address specific issues.”
"Learning practical phone repair skills is helping young people to improve their employment prospects and drive down reoffending."
