"When I first learned about Switchback, I was deeply impressed by the charity and what it sets out to do - though the word 'charity' doesn't seem quite right. 'Family' is a better description because, at Switchback, there is no sense that you only get one shot: support is ongoing. That's one of the reasons why I think Switchback is a success. It also, of course, offers genuine opportunities and positive, practical options to ex-offenders. I think the work placements make a real difference, not just to the young people themselves, but to all of us. Everybody at River Cottage involved with the trainees when they visit say it's one of the best days of their working year!"Hugh Fearnley-WhittingstallRiver Cottage
“It really doesn’t feel like the staff at Switchback are just doing a job, you know they really care and that means a lot. I got a lot of space for trial and error, sometimes things don’t go as planned but that’s okay because you know you’re Mentor is going to listen and talk things through with you. It’s hard to really know what Switchback’s going to be like when your inside, I guess you just have to experience it”Switchback Trainee
“Anybody who’s willing to work hard to try and achieve something is worth a second chance. Switchback is close to my heart and I really believe it offers that second chance to ex-offenders. I’ve worked with Switchback for years and in that time I’ve seen many successes”Joe SackettKitchen Manager, HMP Isis
