Through the Gate supports people in HMP Durham and HMP YOI Low Newton who are being released from prison. We encourage and empower them to take part in activities that will improve their opportunities in finding work and settling back in to life in the community.
The Wise Group currently delivers an enhanced Through the Gate service for Durham and Tees Valley CRC, supporting people leaving prison with resettlement and wraparound mentoring provision. The Wise Group has substantial experience of supporting people in the justice system, including seven years commissioned by the Scottish Government to lead Scotland’s largest justice mentoring programme, New Routes Mentoring PSP.
Our mentors, many of whom have previous convictions themselves, offer a person centred approach to support customers. They provide to find housing, address debt and money worries, work towards employment and address domestic violence and sex work.
We provide responsive, high quality support to promote independent living for those that might have a range of diverse needs.
Through the Gate can also offer a through care service to support clients within the community setting, based on individual needs.
