Belong’s vision is of hope, rehabilitation and recovery for victims and perpetrators of crime. 2021 marked our tenth anniversary, and there is much for us to celebrate! Growing steadily from our London based beginnings, we now support hundreds of victims, perpetrators, and criminal justice staff per year. We are currently working in eight prisons and several community settings.

Our ambitions are to continue to grow our reach, to be a provider of choice within the Criminal Justice System, and to offer meaningful, unique change opportunities to even more people.
