Sova METRO - Mentoring in Staffordshire, Shropshire and West Midlands

Getting used to life after prison is tough for most people.  We support people who may find it difficult to adjust to living and working back in the community.

At Sova METRO we train and support volunteer mentors to support individuals aged over 16 who have been released from custody or are serving a community sentence.  We work  across Staffordshire, Shropshire and the West Midlands to help people lead crime free lives.  Our mentors are focused on providing the best possible support to help and motivate people to make the right choices and to change their lives for the better. This could be by offering practical advice on finding a place to live, managing money or dealing with health problem, encouraging people to get new skills and qualifications so they can find and keep work or simply by being there as a friendly, reassuring person to talk to at a daunting time. 

All our volunteers receive full training and ongoing support.
Sova Metro is part of a wider project delivery team for our Resettlement and Rehabilitation contracts in the West Midlands and is part funded by the European Social Fund and the National Offender Management Service in partnership with Ixion and PACT
