Our partnership, with over 30 years experience in probation work, will help ex offenders develop social capital through sporting activities.

Who are we?

We are probation practitioners who have developed an experise in working with offenders diagnosed with personality disorder. Working in the community, with men and women on Life or IPP licences, we have developed a programme which is informed by psychology and occupational therapy and works in a relational way to help our cases identify areas of their lives that have been problematic and address these areas through sport and reflective feedback group activities.

Our team, as well as having experience in managing risk in the community through careers in probation, love sport and see how the benefits of sporting participation can have positive impacts on individuals and communities.

How we’ll spend the money raised

We are community based so do not require office space but we do need to pay for things like; setting up a website; paying our accountant; buying public liability insurance; running promotions; providing transport; facility and equipment hire; staff wages; staff training; refreshments; etc.

Community impact

The Finish Line Sports Intervention will help individuals on prison licence to build social capital and confidence in the community. Recall rates are high for our target group so any intervention which helps reduce risk benefits the individuals involved; their family and friends and the wider community too. There is also a huge financial benefit to keeping exoffenders out of custody, as it costs around £48,409 per year to house one prisoner. The Finish Line Sports Intervention by comparison offers good value for money.
