Rehabilitation of exprisonners
Majority of those released from prison are reconvicted within a year; many are back inside within a few weeks. There is a huge impact on our economy due to reoffending.
One in six of the general population are aged 18-30 but they make up over a third of those in prison and half of probation’s caseload. Reoffending rates among younger prisoners are often much higher than average.
Our model is intensive and semi-therapeutic
It’s centred on a meaningful relationship between our Mentor and Trainee that lasts as long as it takes. Our methods are careful and consistent whilst rolling with the ups and downs of real life.
RPP Mentors are not volunteers. They are full-time, paid and highly skilled. They each work with a small caseload and they must be willing to become the most important person in a Trainee’s life whilst also working towards that no longer being the case.
