Key4Life is a White City based charity dedicated to reducing youth crime and changing the stigma around offending. The organisation helps to break the cycle of crime by delivering rehabilitation programmes to those in prison and those at risk of going to prison. They also work with the corporate sector to reduce the stigma around employing ex-offenders which is one of the greatest barriers to finding work upon release. The success of their programs is astonishing with participants being four times less likely to offend and four times more likely to gain employment than the national average.
Advance envisions a world where women and children live equal, violence-free lives. They provide emotional and practical support to women who experience domestic abuse to allow them to take back control of their lives. Advance also works with women who are in the criminal justice system. They aim to prevent families breaking down as a result of crime and highlight the link between domestic abuse and offending behaviour.
The Mayor's Consort is Cllr Trey Campbell-Simon.
