When a person leaves prison, they face an uncertain future.
They might lack the support of friends and whānau, face stigma or judgement, or have little connection to the outside world. Many people released from prison will go on to reoffend.
Momentum is working to change that.
What We Do.
The tools to manage everyday life.
We connect them with life skills programmes that teach real world skills and capabilities. Participants learn tools and strategies to face real-world challenges effectively upon their release.
“Most of the things we’ve learnt are things that aren’t taught to us growing up and if they were it would make living a lot easier for us. This programme is well worth doing.”
Participant Ethnicity Split
Participant Age Split
We Measure Increases in Participant Learning During All Programmes
Our future plans.
People who have completed life skills programmes whilst in prison will be linked with community mentors on their release. This will give prison-leavers the chance to employ their new skills and reestablish their lives whilst being directly supported by a knowledgeable, compassionate mentor.
