NL logo 2014 version 2New Leaf is a project offering help to short term prisoners returning to Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Milton Keynes.

Through The Gate Mentoring provided by trained volunteer mentors who will meet with the offender before release, on the day of release and weekly after release with the aim of:

• Offering mentoring and signposting to services which will promote effective resettlement and reduce re-offending

• Enabling offenders to make informed life choices

• Working alongside local statutory and voluntary agencies to offer appropriate support around issues including substance misuse, accommodation, money and debt, education, training and employment

• Establishing strong links between the scheme and local faith and community groups

I am truly grateful for the help and support offered by New Leaf and would like to thank everyone who helped to try and sort my life out.
