Our prison programmes focus on sustainable behavioural change and the emotional health and wellbeing of perpetrators in order to reduce re-offending rates.
With increasing pressures on prisons and prison-staff, we are using our expertise in running perpetrator programmes with a focus on reducing re-offending rates, to work directly with prisons and other stakeholders. We aim to empower participants to break their cycle of damaging behaviour and build their emotional resilience and wellbeing.
RISE work with prison staff and the prison population to help deliver a reduction in the frequency of crises in the prison and the overall reduction of trauma and psychological distress, thus empowering an easier transition from custody to community.
Our prison-based programmes are predominantly trauma-informed and focused on building self-awareness and emotional resilience.
