Welcome to the Inside Out Trust website
The Inside Out Trust develops prison projects based
on restorative justice principles. Prisoners learn new
skills which they willingly use to provide goods and services
to disadvantaged people all over the world; new skills which improve
their own employment prospects after release. Prisoners learn
about the needs of other people and their ability to help them.
They feel restored to the world outside and more positive about
their place within it.
We work closely with prison staff and prisoners, and with a
multitude of voluntary and community organisations, to set up
projects which link the needs of charities and community organisations
all over the world, with people who live and work in prisons.
- builds confidence, self-esteem and concern for the needs
of other people
- gives prisoners the opportunity to gain work experience, skills
- improves each prisonerÔ€™s chance of gaining employment
- is a partnership between the Trust, a prison and at least
one other organisation
Investor in People
As of April 2005, we were re-accredited as an Investor in People.
Investor in People accreditation means that we are fully committed
to developing our staff, volunteers and Trustees who are in turn
encouraged to improve their own and each others' performance.
It demonstrates that we are clear about our aims and objectives
and what our people need to do to achieve them.
