The ongoing need for funding to manage future development

Futures Unlocked has successfully delivered mentoring in Warwickshire for over seven years and has a close working relationship with all statutory arms of the probation service. As a result we are being asked to provide this service in adjoining areas - Coventry and Solihull. We need to train mentors in those areas and to raise awareness of the work we do amongst faith groups and service organisations.

While we have some grant funding we look to our supporters to help in that work. All research shows that support on the pathways to desistance has a major impact on the re-offending rates and costs to society.

This response from a client who has valued the support is typical -

Thanks for everything. Without you and your charity a lot of people that had had a bad life would not be able to move forward. So a massive thanks for everything.
