" It is our goal to substantially reduce offending and re-offending associated with 18 -25 year olds, by providing support and advice through peer mentoring.
Reformed Foundation is a Not-for-Profit Community Interest Company.
We are a peer led mentoring organisation aiming to reduce offending by supporting young people at risk and ex-offenders. Our belief is that through the right support we have the ability to change and improve the lives and behaviour of offenders both inside and outside prisons while reducing crime in the community. Our mentoring programme was written by ex-offenders who have changed their lives and have successfully reintegrated into the community. We aim to improve the lives of our service users by working on a one to one basis and by engaging them on our accredited education, training programmes and employment opportunities.
