about us

Ford Forward has grown out of the recognised need to support those moving through the prison gates back into the community
We offer…
  • Support to men leaving HMP Ford in West Sussex, wherever they might settle
  • Support to men and women returning to West Sussex from other prisons
  • Support prior to, during and post release, including support to their families
