Crime to Christ Charitable Trust

Crime to Christ Charitable Trust is a Northampton-based charity which offers practical and pastoral support to offenders and ex-offenders. It aims to give people support to enable them to turn their lives around, move away from crime, and also to rebuild relationships with families. It runs a number of projects: a resettlement scheme working with offenders prior to release; a mentoring scheme with young offenders and their families; a project working with women receiving community orders; and prevention programmes in local schools.

A £10,450 single grant was made to this charity in February 2015. Funding is towards the Prison Work project, which expects to support 30 offenders and their families in Northamptonshire over the year. The overall aim is to reduce re-offending through offering mentoring and one-to-one support as people leave prison and resettle back into the community.
