Through The Gate

Through The Gate
Through The Gate project at HMP Forest Bank, Salford

Supporting people in prison and out, on a route into employment. 

Our blended approach is person-centred to the individual.

We focus on the most entrenched needs, which means designing interventions for beneficiaries who are excluded.

Without strong role models to help build resilience and character our beneficiaries have little confidence to access life skills that they need to live, learn, work and achieve.
