The Junction 42 Foundation

Junction 42 exists to see the lives of offenders and their communities visibly transformed.

Founded 2012

  • Mission statement

    We create community, encourage independence and empower transformation in the lives of offenders and ex-offenders, as well as in the lives of their family and friends. Junction 42 is a charity with a difference, making a difference.

    Junction 42 was established in 2012, with the founding team bringing more than 45 combined years’ experience of working in prisons and with offenders in the community. We know that helping people into sustainable, crime- and addiction-free independence can require years of dedication but we are in it for the long haul. Seeing lives set free, transformed and empowered is the reason Junction 42 exists.

    Our aim is simple; to offer support and hope to those who need it most. Junction 42 works with individuals in prison, through the gate and in the community across the North East of England and in the central belt of Scotland. We know that having a history of offending often creates additional barriers to social inclusion, employment and independence. Junction 42 exists to help people overcome these barriers, through employability and enterprise, creative engagement and faith.
