StandOut works to transform the lives of people leaving prison. We know that with the right support, people coming out of prison are motivated and have a strong desire to get life on track. They bring determination, commitment and focus and value the opportunity that employment offers. As a result, they can be real assets to a workforce, to their families and to their communities.
We believe that with relational support, people leaving prison can unlock their potential and turn their lives around. StandOut recognises that experience of prison, even a short sentence, can have a negative impact on confidence and self-esteem and so we have developed an innovative approach to supporting people that begins in prison and continues to support them after release for as long as is needed.
The StandOut Programme offers a unique opportunity to people preparing for release from prison by equipping them with the tools, skills and mindsets needed to apply for work so they can re-engage with society with confidence.
