The Key4Life programme works with some of the most disadvantaged young men by supporting and empowering them to secure employment and reintegrate into society on a positive path away from crime.

* Emotional resilience and unlocking negative behaviours that led to conviction which includes bringing horses into prison, football and music
* Employability support to gain work experience and secure a job.
* On-going support to reintegrate into the community and sustain employment for lasting change re-offending rate of 64% one-year post-release
