We’re open for business across all of our services, including New Routes Mentoring support for people leaving prison. In line with Government advice, we’ve paused our face-to-face to contact entirely, instead delivering a high quality nationwide service using alternative channels. This is the right thing to do to ensure the wellbeing of our colleagues and the people who need us in these exceptional times. The picture is evolving daily and we’re doing everything we can to make sure that we’re there to act as the virtual superglue that binds people to the support they need after leaving prison in unprecedented circumstances.
Our community justice services provide mentoring and guidance to people serving short-term sentences, supporting their transition from prison back to the community and reducing their chances of reoffending. Our mentors have helped over 4000 people, overcoming issues such as homelessness, poor mental health, addiction and finance. Our approach is proven to reduce reoffending too.
"Only 9.7% of people return to prison within one year of exiting our service, whereas the current reconviction rate across males aged 21 is 34.6% "
We provide guidance and support to people leaving prison to change their lives for the better. Through one to one mentoring we are able to identify the needs of the individuals to help get them the support they need over a long term basis. We’ve helped over 4,000 people with a range of different issues and our mentoring is a proven, cost-effective way to reduce crime.
We work with over 3000 people, improving their lives by helping them access the services they need and supporting them when they need it most with one to one mentoring. Read about some of our stories below and visit our blog to see even more of the great impact we are having on people’s lives.
