Offender Resettlement Programme
To date In2Change have offered volunteer experience to 34 ex-offenders and serving prisoners.

Of the 34 ex-offenders and serving prisoners that In2Change have previously worked with, less than 9% have gone onto re-offend. Compared to the national re-offending statistics of 29.6%
it is clear that In2Change's strategy of engaging ex-offenders and serving prisoners in purposeful employment is instrumental in reducing re-offending rates.
In2Change is also working with the Safer Roads Partnership Team as part of an ongoing programme and has delivered presentations to over 400 employees and managers of various companies.
