Switchback is an intensive mentoring programme. Our Switchback Mentors help 18-30 year old male offenders – Trainees – make real, long-lasting change after their release from prison.

Switchback Mentors stick by the Trainees as they move through the prison gate, encouraging and challenging them across all areas of their lives.

This is new territory for most Trainees – an honest, frank and unconditional relationship with someone who is there for them on a daily basis.

Switchback Mentors Adham & Danii took 2 Trainees kayaking in Camden! Staff & Trainees hadn’t kayaked before so there were a few nerves prior to getting on the cold water!
The sun was shining & it was a great way to see the area towards London Zoo & Regent’s Park. The trip went brilliantly UNTIL the very end when a game of kayak-tag ended up with Switchback Mentor Adham taking a nose dive into the mossy canal!
