About Us

    About Us

    Established as a registered charity in August 2004, we originally began our work in 1999 as a not-for-profit consultancy providing basic counselling skills courses for inmates at HM Prisons. We are dedicated not only to prison education but also to providing a path to rehabilitation through self knowledge. Our courses teach inmates a skill which could, with further training, lead to a career on release and also insight and self-awareness, making them question the path their lives have taken.

    CPT Courses

    CPT courses enhance personal and skills development, along with an award, which contributes to a raised level of self esteem.

    Prison Courses

    The primary aims of our projects are the promotion of rehabilitation through education and the development of self awareness.

    Community Courses

    The objective of the course is to help students form better relationships with the people they interact with – their friends, peers, partners and the people they work alongside.
