Switchback is a completely different, intensive rehabilitation programme. We help young adult offenders – Trainees – make real, long-lasting change after their release from prison.

We stick by Trainees as they move through the prison gate, encouraging and challenging them to take control and make a more stable life for themselves.

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