Based in Rugby, Futures Unlocked is a community chaplaincy which works across Warwickshire and has been in existence since 2006. It aims to increase safety, reduce re-offending, and strengthen communities through its mentoring work both within prisons, and through-the-gate work into communities. It hopes to create opportunities for people whilst in prison, and on release, to build more stable lives and works with around 60 people at any one time. Futures Unlocked runs a bike recycling project and offers various courses, including a personal development course, and has recently set up a community café.
In February 2017, the Foundation has offered Futures Unlocked a grant of £8,000. This will add to other grant-funding, and income from the café enterprise, and contribute towards the charity’s overall costs.
