We provide through-the-gate mentoring to people leaving custody, throughout the London area. We also run behavioural change programmes, helping people involved in crime to make better decisions and reduce the number of people who re-offend, improving lives, lowering crime rates and reducing the cost to the tax payer.
We know that people will only change if they want to. We listen in order to understand the reasons that people offend in the first place, then provide help to enable them to create new lives, free from the anxieties of their past.

"without the Reasons Why Foundation I wouldn’t have found work and would have been in a consistent battle, since engaging with The RWF, I’ve had two successful interviews and am now employed in a job that I enjoy and that pays my bills. I’m very happy. Thank you" Marina

"Getting to speak with the guys giving the workshop was great, they were very easy to talk with" Simon
"You are the first to actually give a shit, properly listen and keep your word! You got me an interview and even took me to it. You took me to my CSCS test and keep in touch. Talking with someone who really understands has made such a difference to me since I came out. Amazing" David
