3Pillars Project are taking part in Christmas Challenge 2021 to raise at least £4,000 in just 1 week! These funds will be used to help create sports-based interventions for young people to divert them away from crime and support prison-leavers to create brighter futures.
3Pillars Project rehabilitates hundreds of young men to prevent them returning to custody, through their GAMEPLAN intervention programme. GAMEPLAN is a comprehensive multiyear effort to support young people in custody both before and after release from prison with sports-based mentoring.
Currently reoffending in adult prisons stands at 50% within one year of release. For young adults and young people in prison, this is drastically higher; 15- to 18-year-olds reoffend within 1 year of release in 70% of cases. 3Pillars seek to drastically improve the lives of these young people.
Donations to 3Pillars Project will be generously matched by the Local to London Fund during the campaign meaning your money can support twice as many young people.
Jennifer Mustoe-Castle, Chief Operating Officer (interim) at 3Pillars Project:
"This year we’re looking to raise a total of £4,000 In order to access the £2,000 we have in the matching pot, we need to raise £2,000 in online donations. We hope everyone will give generously this Christmas to help us reach our target and enable us to carry on the work we all feel so passionately about.
I truly believe that the best way to rehabilitate those who have offended back into society successfully is by giving them a purpose to believe they can make a valuable contribution to their local community. Please help us create those opportunities”
