No Going Back
No Going Back is an innovative programme of training, support, employment and housing funded and driven by the Livery Companies with job opportunities via their members. It is designed to get people into employment on release and includes accommodation for those leaving prison who might not otherwise be able to take up their jobs. Most importantly it has successfully navigated Covid restrictions to find ways to continue to provide support for people throughout the period.
Following a successful first year with 13 Livery Companies, year 2 sees the involvement of 30 Companies and the doubling of targets to get 90 people into work. Additionally, the project is now actively engaging prisons from all around the country who are releasing into London so we can reach and help more people.
Funded by: No Going Back.
The programme is for people serving sentences of 12 months or less, with a focus on BAME prisoners, and is specifically designed to prepare them, as well as possible, during their time in prison for a successful return to the community upon release.
As the lead partner on the programme, on the “Inside” we have In-custody co-ordinators working with candidates one to one throughout their journey in prison to provide culturally informed support and resettlement planning. On the “Outside” we have In-community co-ordinators, in 12 London Boroughs, taking over post-release to continue the work and signpost to local support organisations, training and employment.

Project Hale Works
Our organization is dedicated to supporting the social, welfare and career needs of our clients. We offer a range of free services to help individuals improve their skills and find employment. We work to reduce crime and its impact on communities by providing people with convictions and those at risk of offending, (many of whom come from marginalised backgrounds and have themselves been victims of crime) with a range of trauma informed, tailor made, interventions with an end goal of gaining sustainable employment.
