Charity description

RECOOP's vision is:

To promote the care, resettlement and rehabilitation of offenders and ex-offenders, in particular those over the age of 50, in particular but not exclusively through the provision of support services, advocacy, financial advice, mentoring on issues such as employment and training and advice on housing and health that will enable them to take control of their lives and remain free from offending and prevent them from becoming socially excluded.

RECOOP was set up because

  • people over 50 are the fastes growing section of the prison population

  • older prisoners and ex-offenders face ill health, financial, social, and housing problems

  • older offenders are more likely to face social isolation, and to have lost contact with friends and family

RECOOP is a not for profit company with charitable status and is committed to supporting older offenders lead purposeful lives.

Charity No: 1139233
