HMPPS CFO3 is a mentoring service in prisons across the North East of England, helping those that are most in need by supporting and encouraging them to overcome barriers to social inclusion and mainstream provision.

Our mentors provide a one-to-one support to our customers, based on individual need. This might be helping to address attitude and life skills, education and training, financial problems, health and wellbeing, relationships or substance misuse.

We take great pride in helping those who need it most and our mentors have been awarded the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) Approved Provider Standard (APS) for their work, the national quality standard for mentoring and befriending projects.

Our customers are aged 18 or over and typically have up to three years to serve on their sentences. We also work with women on remand.  Some of the people we work with will be offenders completing a post-custodial license/supervision period or will be serving a community order.

This project is part funded by the European Social Fund.
