Belong London works with people who have offended and those who have been victims of crime in order to reduce crime and the harm it causes. Our approach to tackling crime involves supporting offenders to exit a life of crime and providing opportunities that help them play a positive role in society. We also support victims of crime to tackle and recover from injustices that have happened to them.
Our services include mentoring, group work and restorative justice programmes for children, young people and adults who have committed offences or been a victim of crime. We work with offenders both in custody and in the community.
