At the Wise Group, we understand what it means to serve a prison sentence. We understand that it can be daunting when release day comes around. We understand that while many of us take for granted having a GP, somewhere to live and managing our money, for those about to step back in to the community these things can present significant barriers to integrating and moving on.
We understand because we’ve been there. Over 50% of our community justice mentors have served a prison sentence and have first hand experience of life inside and the difficulties many face on release.
Young men under the age of 25 are supported through the New Routes service, while those over 25 can receive the support of our Wise Choices programme. SHINE Women’s Mentoring provides support to female prisoners serving a short-term sentence, helping them to complete Community Payback Orders and reintegrate back in to their local communities.
"The Wise Group has went above and beyond once again. Thanks for going the extra mile for me."
