Help young lads leaving prison get 'back on track'

In2Out offers support to lads aged 15-21 leaving prison and returning to communities across the North of England. Our mentoring support begins around 3 months before release and continues for at least 1 year 'on the out', helping lads envisage a different future and break the cycle of reoffending.

With fewer young people in custody, those in prison have increased frequency and severity of offending, complexity of issues and degree of vulnerability. Many have suffered some form of childhood abuse or neglect and have chaotic lifestyles, often lived out in areas of social deprivation. The significant challenges facing them have been compounded and their vulnerabilities heightened by the pandemic. Nationally, on average 65% of 15-18 years old reoffend within 12 months of leaving custody.


In2Out builds relationships of trust and offers committed support to participants approaching release and back in the community. We offer support in: Teaching basic life skills; Ensuring basic needs are met with access to care packages and statutory assistance; Finding employment, education or training opportunities; Developing social skills and engaging in new social opportunities; Developing consequential thinking, managing triggers to offending behaviour and building resilience.
