Young adults especially, possess huge capacity for change and those that have offended need appropriate support in order to break their cycle of re-offending.

The Reasons Why Foundation looks at the Reasons Why people make the choices that have negative impacts on their lives and those lives of others and together we find new alternatives and solutions to reduce re-offending rates and increase employment.

  • Peckham Festival + Peckham Levels

    This Saturday we will be at The Peckham Festival as part The Peckham Levels Event. A couple of our Team will be at Plot 13 where you can learn more about our services, get information on how we work and even get involved, if that is something of interest to you.

    We will be accepting applicants for our next LifeChanger Mentor Training in November and also referrals for people who would like to be participants on our LifeChanger Mentoring Programme as it reaches into the borough of Southwark, starting in Peckham.

    So if you, or someone you know, wants support with employment, resettlement after custody or life with a criminal conviction, come and meet us tomorrow or leave a message by clicking the 'Get in touch' button below this post.

    See you soon.

  • Climbing to new heights

    One of the things I love to do is indoor climbing, so it comes as no surprise that one of our new programmes involves mentoring on a climbing wall.

    Last weekend we took a group of 3 mentees and their mentors to our wall of choice, The Reach Climbing Wall in Woolwich, South London, for some initial training to get them started.

    We'll be taking another group for training this weekend and then, just like the first group, they will be able to spend 10 of their mentoring sessions climbing.

    We're excited to see how well this programme has been received by the participants and other stakeholders alike, combining mentoring, climbing and psychodynamic counselling .
