Our perpetrator work is designed for individuals who have harmed others sexually. We seek to achieve a reduction in abusive behaviour and an increase in pro-social, community integration by facilitating social inclusion. This is achieved by recruiting, training and supervising volunteers from the local community to provide mentoring, advice, guidance and pro-social modelling to individuals with who are leaving prison after long sentences and are at high risk of repeat offending.
