  • Need


    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.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To reduce the risk of offending, integrate participants back into society, making communities safer


    » To provide a residential therapeutic community programme to address attitude, thinking and behaviour and deliver CBT sessions 3 times a week.

    What success will look like

    To deliver the programme and support the participants to successfully graduating from the programme, acquiring a home, employment and not re-offending.

  • Impact


    1. Graduates successful integrate back into society
    2. New lives and safer communities
    3. Reduced re-offending rate - Participants do not re-offending and live a crime free life.


    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 an annual report which will include the Pathways to Change programme. We also produce updates in our supporters magazine.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    84% of our graduates from our ‘Challenge to Change’ programme do not reoffend in the first year following release.

    Kainos believe that, given the right circumstances, surroundings and time, any offender can change experience over the last 15 years has proved that this can happen.

    We are determined in our aim to help as many prisoners as possible develop healthy relationships through the combination of community living and the basic Christian value of loving one’s neighbour as one's self
