We believe that an organisation created by ex-prisoners needs to stay true to the men and women on the wings. To do this we make sure that our power base, and our decisions, stay in the hands of ex-prisoners.
As well as helping people, we want change. We want to breakdown the stigma and stereotype that stands in the way of people being welcomed back to the community. We want to alter a system that judges people on past actions, not on their strengths and potential for the future. We want to shine a spotlight on the barriers that people face on release and find ways to remove these. We want to be a voice which is heard not just within Manchester, but nationally.
We welcome everyone who wants to join us, who is genuine and compassionate. Whatever your skills, we will find a place for you within our team. We are just like you.
