Lendlease, leader del real estate a livello globale, si distingue per una operazione innovativa di social outcome contracting nell’ex area di Expo 2015.

With an inmate re-integration project, Lendlease, the global leader in real estate, stands out for an innovative social outcome contracting operation in the former Expo 2015 area.

Programs of this type are certainly not new. Especially in Italy, however, most of them have to do with social realities, especially cooperatives. The activation of a player like Lendlease introduces the role of for-profit companies structured in a complex path of great social interest for the community and at the same time ensures greater certainty on the horizon of the people involved reducing the usual precariousness of this type of intervention. 

Besides, the public-private partnership is based on a payment mechanism following the social results achieved according to the agreed impact targets. Private individuals are involved both in investment and in the development and provision of services. A widespread model in the UK, less so in the rest of Europe. Payment, in this case, is guaranteed by a fund financed by the European Social Fund.

Lendlease is one of the world’s leading real estate and infrastructure multinationals, often working in public and private partnerships and signing property development and management, urban regeneration. 

Ten inmates admitted, including six with a six-monthly internship and three through a fixed-term contract, with clerical, security management and Autocad design tasks. Among them, seven were reconfirmed, one completed the detention period, one continued to work outside of the program, and one ended the placement due to the end of the contract of the company that employed him.

The project is titled Program 2121 and, in addition to the insertion in the company through a paid internship, provides for the provision of two transversal training modules, provided by ANPAL and ANPAL Services during the entire duration of the internship, useful to ensure an effective transition of inmates from the prison environment to that of the companies in which they were hosted. 

Started in November 2018, the public-private initiative promoted by the Italian Ministry of Justice and Lendlease aimed to enhance the presence of Bollate Prison in the immediate vicinity of the MIND Milan Innovation District site, the redevelopment project of the area that in 2015 hosted the Universal Expo and managed by the company Arexpo.

An experience that each territory can replicate, committing itself to put together and then manage the available public and private resources, with the national coordination of the Department of Prison Administration.
