We provide through-the-gate mentoring to people leaving custody, throughout the London area. We also run behavioural change programmes, helping people involved in crime to make better decisions and reduce the number of people who re-offend, improving lives, lowering crime rates and reducing the cost to the tax payer. We know that people will only change if they want to. We listen in order to understand the reasons that people offend in the first place, then provide help to enable them to create new lives, free from the anxieties of their past.
