Abandofbrothers (ABOB) provides a unique rites-of-passage mentoring programme to young men (18-25) involved with the Criminal Justice System (CJS). It is a social action solution, aimed at empowering local areas to tackle their own issues. It is delivered by older male volunteers from their own local communities, supported by a central hub providing expertise and training.
The young men are given the support they need to enable a life free of crime and full of meaning, purpose and connection.
Our mission is to enable young men involved in the criminal justice system to make a transition into an adulthood free of crime and full of purpose, connection and meaning.
Our vision is of a world where every man and boy leads a life full of meaning, purpose and connection; where mature masculinity is promoted at every stage of life and modelled by authentic older role models.
abandofbrothers aims to:
- Reduction of reoffending rates. We have already seen a reduction in reoffending through the work we do.
- Increase employment levels among the young men that we support. We have already seen a reduction in NEET status.
- Increase volunteering - amongst the young men we work with and the older volunteers - many of whom are volunteering for the first time.
- Increase in secure housing for the young men we work with.
