St Giles Trust

St Giles Trust is a UK charity helping ex-offenders & disadvantaged people to move their lives forward.

Founded 1962

  • Mission statement

    St Giles Trust deliver award-winning training, employment, rehabilitation and resettlement support services to ex-offenders, vulnerable children and disadvantaged families, young people at risk of offending and other socially excluded people.

    Our work benefits over 15,000 people every year. We offer support to help people overcome any issues holding them back. This is provided by those who know best - people who have been there themselves.

    Each generous pound donated to St Giles Trust goes towards helping people that have been locked out of society to make positive changes in their lives.

  • Aims

    St Giles Trust aims to:

    • Find people a safe place to live - we help prison leavers and homeless clients access accommodation. This is the starting point from which all else follows and a key factor in reducing re-offending.
    • Help people to build positive relationships - we support people with re-integrating into society and foster positive relationships with friends, family and other support services.
    • Provide support from someone who's been there - 44% of our staff are ex offenders and 90% of our services are delivered by former service users with 'lived experience' of overcoming disadvantage.
    • Give people something to work for - we assist people with gaining employment and moving closer towards entering the job market.
