Aims and activities
Aims and questions
No Going Back is a programme providing prison leavers with support, training, jobs, accommodation and more. Our 2020 pilot programme was supported by thirteen Livery Companies, with nearly thirty supporting year two. A Steering Group sets the strategy, with delivery partner Bounce Back facilitating the programme. We’re also in the process of founding a social enterprise specialising in construction-site cleaning, to provide job opportunities for service users.
Our primary aim is to help prison leavers build a productive life and reduce recidivism rates, and to do so more effectively than we could working individually. Identifying an issue many Livery Companies have experience and interest in has been crucial in mobilising the collaboration and sustaining engagement.
How to get involved
27 Livery Companies are supporting the programme in its second year.
