Welcome to key4life

Our mission is to reduce youth reoffending through the delivery of an innovative rehabilitation programme to those in prison and those at risk of going to prison. 

 

The cost of putting one participant through the Key4Life programme is £5,000 versus the average annual cost of a prison place in England and Wales of £37,000.

 

16% of those who have been through the Key4Life programme have re-offended, compared to the national proven re-offending rate of 74%.

  • Key4Life is a brilliant initiative showing that anything that gives young people an interest has got to be good. I hope it flourishes.
