bl&st is a Christian inspired organisation, aiming to deliver a variety of courses and programmes focused on supporting students and their families on their personal transformation, business life and skills training programmes, underpinned by our executive mentoring programme which focuses on equipping offenders and ex-offenders and their families to prepare for the always difficult task of successfully reintegrating into lawful society.
Our prisons are filled with some of the neediest people, trapped in a cycle of poverty living a life of crime. We want to work together to deliver and change this. bl&st work with those whom society has cast off; instead of sending them back out to commit more crime, bl&st will develop their skills in turn challenging them to maintain high standards in their lives. bl&st want them to see Gods love in action.
bl&st Foundation will provide Business, Life and Skills Training programmes that transform and educate prison inmates, enabling them to obtain the skills and qualifications needed for their successful reintegration into society, following release from prison. All offenders have transformation and restoration within them. A sculptor surveyed a large block of granite prior to beginning work, a small boy asked him what he was going to make of it, he replied “come back in three months and see”. In three months the boy returned to see a beautiful statue of a man on a rearing horse. His eyes opened wide and he asked “how did you know it was in there?” Just like the block of granite, offenders have transformation and restoration within them, bl&st has the programme to release them.
