Commonweal Housing is delighted that the Re-Unite project we helped to create was recognised at the 2013 No Offence! Redemption and Justice Awards.
Winning in the Partnerships category was especially wonderful, since a strong partner led approach is at the heart of Commonweal’s working model. We work alongside like-minded charity and housing partners to provide housing solutions that tackle social injustice.
The award is also fantastic recognition of all the hard work and dedication of our Re-Unite project partners spread across the country- Housing for Women in London, Threshold in Greater Manchester, Anawim in Birmingham, ISIS Women’s Centre in Gloucestershire and the Together Women Project Yorkshire and Humberside.
The Re-Unite project helps mothers who have been released from prison to reunite and resettle with their families. Re-Unite provides a tried and tested package of support and housing to ensure that mothers and children start to live healthy, stable, crime-free lives.
