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
Our charity is a member of the Community Chaplaincy Association, a network of independent multi-faith based organisations providing resettlement support for people leaving prison. This enables us to learn from, network with, and share expertise with other charities working in the same field.  Seeing A New Future is an excellent CCA report, which captures our vision as a proud member
We are delighted to have been awarded funds from the National Lottery community Fund, enabling us to recruit and train a team of volunteers to provide resettlement support for people leaving prison
We have strong working relationships with many other organisations which enable us to help people access the support they need.  The Prison Reform Trust is a helpful news resource, including how families are affected by imprisonment
