Switchback is an intensive mentoring programme. Our Switchback Mentors help 18-24 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.
