There are over 80,000 men and women serving custodial sentences in Britain today. They come from all levels of Society, many from dysfunctional backgrounds, many with learning difficulties, many suffering from addiction.
- All these reasons and more make people turn to crime. We all know the outcomes of living a crime-ridden life; broken families, a loss of self-respect, a loss of dignity and the prospect of an uncertain future, at best, or no real future at all; it’s a vicious circle that’s so hard to break.
- Royal London Society BREAKS the circle. We believe that, if someone really wants to stop offending, they can re-establish themselves by obtaining sustainable employment to transform their life positively.
- We know employment radically reduces re-offending rates, which reduces the cost of custody and the number of victims.
