STANDOUT PROGRAMMES 

The StandOut Programme is an innovative approach to training, coaching and supporting people preparing for release from prison. It operates in three stages:an intensive course delivered in prison in the lead up to release; on-going support up to the point of release; and continued support after release into employment, education or training.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • There has been strong growth in spending since inception
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy

Financial issues to consider:

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