In2Out - supporting young offenders
In2Out, a charity based on the YOI in Wetherby, stands alongside young people, helping them straighten out their often chaotic lives and avoid reoffending.
Many of these youngsters have had a disadvantaged start in life: the majority have little or no contact with their fathers, and many suffer from learning and mental health issues.
In2Out, which is a community chaplaincy, helps to find suitable participants accommodation, employment and education and, if appropriate, a church. It supports the young people once they are 'outside' through a network of 30 volunteers spread across the north of England.
One important condition is that participants must acknowledge that they need to change and need help to do so. On average only 20% of In2Out's participants re-offend, which compares favourably to the national re-offending rate of 70%.
Please visit In2Out's web site for more information on how you and your church can support this hugely worthwhile and inspiring charity through prayer, volunteering and giving.
