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 treble our reach, through deeper more sustainable partnerships: preventing young people from entering the criminal justice sector, rehabilitating existing prisoners and enabling young people to thrive. To do this, we need your help.

For every £1 we receive;

  • 51p 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
  • 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
