Our mission is to reduce youth re-offending through delivering an innovative rehabilitation programme to those in prison and those at risk of going to prison. We also work with under 18s tackling anti-social behaviour and knife crime.
Ultimately we aim to saves lives and help break the cycle of crime. Offending already costs the economy £18 billion annually and Key4Life helps reduce offending with astonishing results. Only 14% of participants have re-offended, compared to the national rate of 64% one-year post release. And a Key4Life participant is four times more likely to be employed a year post-release. Since the cost of putting one participant through the Key4Life programme is £5000 versus the average annual cost of a prison place in England and Wales of £37,000, the investment is clearly worthwhile.
