Routes out of Prison
The Wise Group's award winning project Routes out of Prison works with offenders serving sentences of four years or less on their release from prison. Wise Group life coaches and employment advisors help with issues including homelessness, addiction, benefits and finding work.
The Wise Group’s Routes out of Prison project helps prisoners get the life, social and employment skills they need to rejoin family life and society. Life Coaches, being ex prisoners themselves, use their own experiences in turning their life around to help others do the same.
• work with prisoners serving three month to four year sentences, for four weeks before they leave prison
• prepare an action plan for release including arranging help with housing, debt, benefits, addiction, training, education and work experience
• provide one-to-one support after release to help people gain life, social and employment skills
Routes out of Prison is available to prisoners before they are released from Addiewell, Barlinnie, Cornton Vale, Polmont Young Offenders Institution, Kilmarnock and Greenock.
