Sova is a charity that works in the heart of communities in England and Wales to help people steer clear of crime and to live healthier lives.


We make sure that when people find themselves in difficult situations they have someone on their side to help them make better choices so they can stay out of trouble and build better lives. And it’s something we’ve done for more than 40 years

Our experience has shown us that for people to see new possibilities for themselves, they need to believe they can make good decisions. They need the support of someone from their community. They need financial stability and the chance to work or contribute to society. They need a home. Quite simply, they need a chance. Whether it’s about finding a job or a course, understanding how to manage money or discovering new interests or developing relationships, we help people improve their lives for the better. By supporting individuals and families to deal with the challenges that are holding them back in life – Sova helps to create a safer, stronger, fairer society.
