Pathways to Change
Pathways to Change is an exciting rehabilitation therapeutic community programme delivered in Hampshire - supporting ex-offenders or those at risk of offending to break the cycle of offending, to live crime free lives and to become a valued member of society.
March 2019 - March 2021
Charity information: Langley House Trust
Our mission is to work with those who are at risk of offending or have offended, establishing positive foundations so that they can lead crime-free lives and become contributors to society.
Every ex-offender helped means a step closer to making our vision and mission a reality. Ultimately, this means safer communities, fewer victims and restored lives.
Pathways to Change has a unique approach to bringing about change. We use cognitive-behavioural methods (CBT) within a group setting to develop pro-social thinking and behaviour. This is then put into practice within the safety of a residential therapeutic community.
To reduce the risk of offending
Activities» To provide a residential therapeutic community programme to address attitude, thinking and behaviour and deliver CBT sessions 3 times a week.
» To provide health and well-being session to address mental health such as Equine assistance learning and restorative justice sessions.
» To provide and promote healthy living such as Independent cooking skills and fitness session.
» To deliver horticulture session to deliver work experience and garden therapy. These session will include community produce giving - foodbanks
What success will look like
Our success will be demonstrated through participants not re-offend and successfully gaining employment and housing.
To successfully integrate participants on the programme back into the community.
Activities» To provide essential support to all participants with a move on plan to successful move in to the community
» To provide money management and tenancy readiness sessions.
» To provide a mentor in the community to support successful integration.
» To provide housing support - to enable the participant to acquire a home.
What success will look like
Our success will be demonstrated though the participant not re-offending or returning to prison.
The long term changes will be a reduced risk of offending. We expect to see a change in attitude with a more positive outlook. We will measure and monitor change throughout the programme through the use of self assessment questionaries’ and growth wheels which will measure changes in attitude, distance travelled through the programme and also the ability to self reflect.
Participants will also have mentors to monitor and support integration into the community.
The programme will be monitored on a monthly basis and evaluated every 6 months. Any issues will be address on a monthly basis. Our main concern would be not receiving referrals to the programme however we have made essential links with local and national prisons, probation, local authorities, other agencies or self referrals to enable referrals to be made and processed effectively ensuring participants access to the programme.
We provide a annual report which will include the Pathways to Change programme. We also produce updates in our supporters magazine and produce a 6 monthly update to all donors via letter.
