Programme: Development & Impact / What Works Funding: £300,000 Location: Greater London
PLIAS Resettlement is a not-for-profit organisation that reduces re-offending by providing support, advice and guidance to people with criminal convictions, focusing on the communities of North and West London.
Their grant will fund a programme which supports 120 young people aged 16-24 in Brent and Harrow who are unemployed/NEET and involved in or on the cusp of the criminal justice system. 65-70% participants will be from BAME communities. They will be provided with an average of 6-9 months of weekly case management support, with at least 3 months (and up to 12 months) of weekly mentoring, support with training, IAG support and job-focused qualifications.
