Spark Inside is now enabling more young people to access coaching at different points in their journey, by delivering our Hero’s Journey life coaching programme in the community, in partnership with the Forward Trust and the National Probation Service.
The Forward Trust is a national charity that empowers people to break the cycles of addiction or crime to move forward with their lives. It has pulled together a fantastic group of values-aligned organisations to deliver new probation services aimed at rehabilitating individuals and cutting crime, called Personal Wellbeing Services. We are proud to join this group, bringing our distinctive approach to working with young people.
We will deliver our Hero’s Journey group workshops in local spaces in Surrey and Sussex over the next three and a half years. Each young person taking part in the workshops will consequently be offered up to eight one-to-one life coaching sessions.
Our CEO Vicki Cardwell said:
“One of our strategic aims is to increase the number of young people who access coaching at more points on their journey, and bringing Hero’s Journey to probation is key in achieving this. Through this exciting partnership Spark Inside will coach over one hundred young people who have left prison or are serving community orders.”
Hero’s Journey™ is our structured life coaching programme for young people aged 15 – 25 in contact with the criminal justice system. It builds their motivation to change, enhances wellbeing and contributes to rehabilitation. You can find out more about it here, and we look forward sharing the impact of this new collaboration.
