1) Key activities
- Social inclusion project- CFO 3 - working with hardest to help participants
- Career advice and guidance in Custody
- Training and learning
- Mentoring support project
2) Key measures
The Restore Trust delivers services that promote social inclusion in both a custodial and community setting and approx 100 people access our services each month.
This support is structured to provide career advice and assist people back to work, as keeping one ex offender out of prison saves the tax payer approx £33k per annum.
3) Creating economic and social value
As an example of just one project, The Restore Trust is working on the CFO 3 ESF project with an active caseload of approx 50 beneficiaries who are considered the hardest to help participants, providing intense case management support to slowly support them into training and employment and to engage with mainstream services.
This has economic and social value benefits to the individuals concerned as well as the wider community.
