  • St Giles Trust

    Founded in 1962, St Giles Trust supports ex-offenders and disadvantaged people to help break the cycle of offending, prison and homelessness.  It works with around 16,000 people each year in prisons and in the community providing intensive, tailor-made support to help people overcome any barriers which might be preventing people from moving their lives forward in a positive way.  Typically, this involves support around housing, looking for work and engaging with other support services.  It passionately believes in putting trained, reformed ex-offenders at the heart of their services, allowing them to become positive role models who inspire change in the people they help.  Around one-third of the workforce at St Giles Trust are former clients.
