New Routes offers support, guidance and mentoring for male offenders.
At the Wise Group, we understand the unique nature of the complex barriers faced by those serving a prison sentence. We understand because at least 50% of our mentors have lived experience of the justice system.
Our mentors provide prison leavers with specialist one-to-one support through mentoring, while promoting strong partnerships between other organisations.
Our customers are supported by Wise Group mentors for six months before release, and again post liberation as they reintegrate back into the community.
Working across Scotland, New Routes is delivered as a Public Social Partnership (PSP), funded by the Scottish Government and led by the Wise Group. Our delivery partners include Sacro, Apex Scotland, SAMH and Families Outside.
Together, we deliver effective community based services to men of all ages in the justice system.
