OFFENDERS & EX-OFFENDERS

The Foundation has been a keen supporter of penal reform, and funded groups working with offenders for many years.

We now focus funding solely on organisations supporting female offenders, and those in prison for violence against women.

Supporting work with women in prison, ‘through the gate’, ex-offenders, and those at risk of re-offending. Also those in prison for violence against women.

The Foundation has recently updated its criteria within this programme, to have a focus solely on women.  We will now focus only on women affected by the criminal justice system; and also on people who are in prison for violence against women.

We will consider applications to fund groups and organisations that work with women in prison and ‘through the gate’, female ex-offenders, and those women who are at risk of offending.

We will also focus funding on groups and organisations that work with people in prison for violence against women, including perpetrators of domestic violence and sex offenders.

We are especially keen to support the rehabilitation of people, and work that helps reduce the likelihood of re-offending behaviour.  The Foundation has been a strong advocate for the work of Community Chaplaincies and Restorative Justice in the past.

We have funded specific work with perpetrators of domestic violence, sex offenders and older prisoners and others. We also support organisations which work for change within the criminal justice system. Projects funded include training in employable skills, literacy, a range of art-based projects, work with the families of prisoners, and a range of other activities.
