Sussex Community Foundation Award
November 2019 – We are delighted to have been awarded funds from the Sussex Community Foundation, enabling us to equip our volunteers and to provide support for people leaving prison.
Over the past quarter our Volunteer Coordinator has been training a group of men and women with a heart for helping those leaving prison, to get alongside men and women resettling in our area, befriending and mentoring them. These relationships are so important to the resettlement process and we are excited to now have opportunities to work with a greater number of clients as a result of this increase in our resources.
