CEO and Founder of In2Change
Brian is the CEO and Founder of In2Change since 2006. Working in Category B/Local prison Brian realised the “missing link” to the rehabilitation of prisoners and their families.
Working alongside prisoners together, they designed and created programmes that targeted disadvantaged families, ex-offenders and young people through education and crime awareness. The creation of In2Change, in which Brian played an integral part, was to utilise the untapped knowledge and aspirations of offenders who had made a poor judgement and find alternative solutions to give something back by making a positive contribution to society.
Brian sought to take the “Prison” into the community and successful partnerships with South Yorkshire Police, HM Prisons, Probation Services and Community Safety Partnerships has enabled In2Change to expand into a new building - Rutland Hall. From this purposely designed centre, In2Change can further develop and deliver its services and programmes locally and nationally further enhancing the rehabilitation of offenders and providing valuable mentor support to disadvantaged and vulnerable young people.
Brian has over 30 years management experience in a variety of employment including hospitality, long term unemployed, prisons, ex-offenders, resettlement. The pinnacle of his career was being invited to her Majesty the Queen’s Garden party in May 2016. Brian spoke with her Majesty about In2Change and the new centre that is Rutland Hall in Sheffield which will be finished in the summer of 2018.
