We have made a grant of £20,000 to the Reasons Why Foundation. It will part-fund a Lambeth Caseworker who will work with 45 young ex-offenders delivering: need assessments, individual training and progression plans, fortnightly key working including employment support, skills development workshops and oversight of the weekly mentoring delivered by volunteers. The project uses neurolinguistic programming and cognitive behavioural tools to enable each individual to understand and manage what triggers their offending. Participants are supported for a minimum of six months.

We especially welcome comments from grantees telling us how the project is going
