LANDWORKS 

LandWorks is a ground-breaking resettlement charity working with those in prison, or at risk of going to prison. Using the structure of a working day to teach transferable skills and work intensively on a 1-2-1 basis, we help them develop a crime-free identity, move away from offending and back into jobs and the community. We have proven we can break the crime-prison-release-prison cycle.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been reasonable growth in spending over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • There have been no income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including a Community Foundation
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
Established: 8 years
