Community Justice


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. 

Community Justice

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.

The support we provide is centred around the individual needs of each person we work with and we understand the challenges faced after time in prison; at least 50% of our mentors have personal experience of the justice system.

Our Impact

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.
