We work with people living in the Birmingham area. The type of services we provide are…

Preparing you for
release
• Signposting

The areas we can help you with signposting are…

• Anti Gun/Knife crime
• Family

• Employment

We are currently working closely with the chaplaincy department in HMP Hewell and HMP Stoke Heath. We aim to work with an ex-offender 3 months prior to release and a minimum of 3 months after release.  We meet the service users at the gates and walk with them on the journey to success away from crime.
