BLAST was founded in 2009, then become a registered charity in 2010, to support people in prison and in the community; by encouraging their personal transformation and developing their key skills.
As a Christian Resettlement Charity, founded on Christian principles and ethos, to deliver a variety of prisoner resettlement services and programmes, designed to support students/graduates and their families with Business, Life, And Skills Training (BLAST).
BLAST caseworkers support, prepare and equip graduates ex- offenders for the often difficult task of reintegrating in lawful society, after prison.
“Today Britain’s prisons are filled with some of the neediest people from society, often trapped in a cycle of poverty and debt, living lives of crime often with addictions. BLAST want to work together with HMPPS (Prison and Probation Services) to deliver programmes, which change this.”
