Khulisa exists thanks to the generous support and donations we receive from our partners and supporters: 100% of our income is fundraised or earned by delivering services in prisons and community centres.
By supporting our work, you enable us to give people a second chance in life; we work with offenders or young people who have been excluded from mainstream schools. We help them to build self confidence, self awareness and help them in recognising and managing their triggers to anger or violent behaviour.
Our programmes really transform lives; participants who complete a Khulisa programme are 4 times less likely to re-offend, they report improved self confidence, increased motivation and an overall increase in physical and emotional well-being. For every £1 we spend on our work in prisons, we create £12 in savings for the prison system.
Over the next 3 years, we want to expand to ensure we can support at least 1,000 people a year: preventing young from entering the criminal justice sector, rehabilitating existing prisoners and re-integrating ex-offenders into the community. To do this, we need your help.
£710 is enough to support one pupil on the Khulisa programme and to provide year-long training for their teachers
£420 is enough to support one prisoner on the Khulisa programme and to provide year-long training for their prison staff
£450 is enough to support one ex-prisoner on the Khulisa programme and to provide year-long training for their support staff
For every £1 we receive;
- 41p is spent preventing children from entering the prison system; we will support nearly 300 children who have either been excluded from school or are from groups which we know are vulnerable to crime
- 30p is spent supporting young adults in prisons and Young Offenders Institutes; we will support more than 200 prisoners to help them understand and tackle with the root cause of their offending behaviour
- 10p is spent supporting ex-prisoners reintegrate into the community when released from prison; we will support over 100 ex-prisoners, providing mentoring and therapeutic support which helps them build a healthier, crime-free life
- 19p is spent raising awareness of the issues we seek to solve, raising funds for Khulisa, developing evidence-based policy recommendations and seeking policy change, continuing our robust monitoring and evaluation of Khulisa programmes in order to share best practice and make our programmes more effective
