Sova Connect East of England

Helping offenders to move towards social inclusion and mainstream provision by addressing their multiple barriers.

Many of our participants lack confidence, have low self-esteem, lead chaotic lifestyles and have little support from family and friends. Working alongside The Shaw Trust and CGL staff, our mentors are there to motivate, encourage and support offenders living in the community or currently in custody to get the skills, qualifications and confidence they will need to address their barriers and reintegrate into the community. This could be by offering advice on putting together a CV, helping to find the right training or college course, taking people to appointments and interviews or simply being there for reassurance and as a trusted person to talk to.


The Sova Connect East of England Project is funded by a Co-financing Organisation of the European Social Fund and National Offender Management Service via The Shaw Trust.
