We deliver education and advice & guidance in 22 prisons

We are committed to transforming the lives of people with convictions through our work in prisons.

Our services have been designed to tackle the underlying causes of offending behaviour so people can make positive changes to their lives.

With more than 500 people working to support people with convictions in custody and in the community, we bring passion, experience and innovation to public sector rehabilitation services.

We also work with specialist partner organisations to help people move away from their past and look forward to a brighter future.

All of our services are designed in partnership with the people who we’re trying to help. Our work includes:

And away from our direct work with people serving their sentences, we’re working hard to change attitudes towards people who can often be tarnished unfairly following criminal convictions. Our Social Recruitment Framework brings together organisations to tackle any pre-conceived ideas about hiring people who have previously been involved in crime.

We also work with employers on the Ban the Box initiative to support fair and equal recruitment processes and have engaged industry to influence our employer-led curriculum delivered to our learners.
