How it works

No Going Back is a rehabilitation programme supporting people through their journey in prison, preparing them for release and for the wide range of job opportunities the programme has on offer.

The programme can be accessed in a number of London prisons, as well as those around the country releasing into Greater London, and in the Community.

People who are within 3-6 months of their release date, that meet the criteria, are able to join the programme and a dedicated NGB engagement manager will work directly with them during their remaining time in prison and beyond. This gives them access to a bespoke package of support with training and upskilling opportunities, employability and work readiness workshops and other soft skills to ensure they are fully prepared on release for the specific job roles an employer has on offer.

Participants skills are matched to the job roles on offer and additional training is available where necessary. The aim is to ensure people are as prepared as possible on release for the specific job roles an employer has available.

Jobs opportunities on the programme are from a wide variety of sectors and includes the built environment, HGV/driving, cleaning, hospitality, sales, admin, engineering and more.

Individuals are fully supported throughout their journey in preparation for, and into, work with help with CV’s and interview practice.  We stay with people for as long as is needed, whilst also supporting the employers to ensure the process works for both sides.

The input of the increased number of Livery Companies has enabled us to offer more jobs in a wider variety of sectors. In addition No Going Back offers help with housing for those that need it in order to be able to accept their job offers.
