When we set up On the Out we thought about the things we needed when we got out but didn`t get. Most of all we wanted someone to be on our side, who saw our strengths and potential, and who would help us without judgement. Someone who wouldn`t just send us places but go with us.
We are a team who have experienced life on the margins of society. Some of us had learnt to distrust it, to see it as something working against us. At times we had given up. At times we still struggle.
So at On the Out there is a group of people who will stand by your side as barriers are faced and overcome. We understand the effects of years of imprisonment because we are those people. Some of these were practical, like sorting out accommodation, benefits and ID. Some were about getting more help – help with addiction, mental health or relationships.

We couldn't do what we do without our amazing staff, volunteers and friends.
