In2Change is a nonprofit charitable organisation that aims to prevent young people from becoming involved in criminal activities through targeted interventions designed and delivered by ex-offenders and serving prisoners. We hope to empower and encourage young people to make the right choices, form positive relationships, and rebuild their confidence, whilst providing essential support to their attitudes towards authority, education and community.

By providing sustainable, relevant, motivating and purposeful activities for adults and young people, we support our beneficiaries to fulfil their true potential and equip them with the skills, knowledge, and aptitudes necessary to succeed in life and work.
