3 PILLARS PROJECT CIO 

3Pillars Project works to prevent ex-offenders and young people vulnerable to crime from social exclusion and assists them to rehabilitate and integrate back into society. Through sports based mentoring, in custody and the community, we strive to transform the long term employment prospects of ex-prisoners, through structured apprenticeship programmes, paid work and support to gain qualifications.
