A key part of our work is our resettlement service for young adults who are serving custodial sentences. We take an holistic approach to reduce violence and work with those most likely to become victims or perpetrators, our work reaches those in HMP’s across the Country. Our resettlement/in reach support ensures our relationship with those at risk is maintained throughout their sentence/release. We aim to provide real pathways out of reoffending and violence. We will work with our participants addressing a whole host of needs including accommodation, education/training, employment, health, family relationships and other identified welfare issues. We provide an open minded, non-judgemental service and will continue to work with our participants no matter how long it takes. Our support is tailored to their individual’s needs. Our work includes;
- Working in partnership with HMP providers/Probation Services
- Prison release /gate collection – imminent support i.e. benefits, housing welfare issues
- Long term goal setting/support to achieve plan of support to prevent offending and achieve positive outcomes
- Training/Education and employment, literacy skills, becoming job ready and searching for employment
Our community base is a ‘safe zone’ for young men, women and their families to attend to secure support and guidance. Here, we often do young men’s CV’s, hold group meetings, mother’s support and a space to come and talk openly and safely.
