The Safer Living Foundation
The Safer Living Foundation UK Charity No.1155788
Nationally recognised for outstanding work, and awarded the 2015 Robin Corbett Award for Prisoner Rehabilitation, the Safer Living Foundation deploys expertise in close alignment with local and regional civic partners in the support of high risk sexual offenders and protection of communities.
An initiative between HMP Whatton, National Probation Service (East Midlands), Nottinghamshire Police, Circles UK and Nottingham Trent University, the Foundation focuses on reducing sexual (re)offending through rehabilitative initiatives that promote the protection of people from, and the prevention of, sexual crime, and support the rehabilitation of those who have committed or who are likely to commit sexual offences against others. Working with older and intellectually disabled offenders, who often have little or no social support, trained volunteers meet on a regular basis with offenders to assist their reintegration into society by acting as a support network and safety mechanism for offenders and for protection of the community at large. Uniquely, the offender support commences prior to release from custody, and continues through the release and into the community.Read more case studies
