What is Inside Out?

Based at St. Peter’s in the City, Derby, the Inside Out community reaches out to prison leavers and others who would benefit from support . Our aim is to empower participants to make healthier life choices, develop self-worth, find purpose and meaning, and contribute more productively to society. Each participant will have a mentor to support them with accommodation needs, to help them access work and education and volunteer work placements, and to seek and sustain employment. Inside Out have also partnered with Faith Hope & Enterprise Housing to offer some participants accommodation.
