Established in 2013, In2Out is a registered charity (1154984) that aims to reduce reoffending amongst children and young people aged 15-21 years as they leave custody, allowing them to realise their potential, whilst also helping to make communities safer for everyone.
We believe that each young person leaving prison deserves the opportunity to get their life 'back on track', turn away from offending behaviour, restore broken relationships and to experience life in all its fullness. To achieve this, young people need to be supported with positive role-models and influences, including much practical support. We do this through one-to-one mentoring, via a network of dedicated volunteers and staff based across the north of England.
In the last 5 years we have supported well over 350 young people leaving custody.
In2Out awarded the 'Approved Provider Standard' by NCVO
Following a full audit of our work in December 2018 we are pleased to announce that In2Out have been recertified with the 'Approved Provider Standard' by the National Council of Voluntary Organisations (NCVO). The 'APS' is a national quality mark designed specifically for mentoring and befriending projects. Achieving the standard demonstrates that In2Out fully met all 10 requirements of the standard, and was independently assessed by experts in good practice in mentoring and befriending.
We are once again proud to be recognised for providing excellent mentoring and befriending to the young men that we support as they leave custody.
Celebrating 5 years of changing lives
We've been changing lives for the past 5 years! Over the next 12 months we're going to be celebrating some of the successes from the past 5 years. Keep an eye out for upcoming news, events and fundraiser's we are hosting over this year to celebrate!
Prison's Week 14th - 20th October 2018
Prison's Week has arrived! This is a week to raise awareness and remember those who are involved in the prison system in the UK. We'll be visiting churches to deliver presentations about the work of In2Out and invite people to pray for and support the work we do. We're thrilled to be part of this initiative and help to break stereotypes of prison and prisoners in the UK.
If you would like us to come and visit your church or community group and share about the work of In2Out, then please get in touch on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout the year many of our staff and volunteers are taking part in our #changinglivesin2out fundraising campaign in order to try and raise £25,000.
We want to recruit another Mentor Coordinator by the end of the year to broaden our reach even further and help support more young men as they leave custody.
Last year we supported 91 young people. It would be great if we could support well over 100 in 2019.
