Joint volunteer mentor scheme with KPMG
 
Key4Life and professional services company, KPMG, are delighted to announce the launch of a joint scheme to reduce reoffending in young offenders aged 18 to 26 years. The pilot includes volunteers training on Key4Life’s mentoring programme as well as ‘Impact Coaches’ to offer employability advice and support.
 
The official launch was held on Wednesday 17th January 2018 where KPMG volunteers and guests were introduced to Key4Life by Key4Life Founder and CEO Eva Hamilton MBE.  Attendees also heard case studies of current mentors and mentee relationships, as well as a special acoustic performance from Anthon Dinnall, Key4Life Caseworker and Ambassador.
 
The first KPMG volunteers have started supporting Key4Life’s programme in HMP Brixton and through the gate. As Nicholas Fox, KPMG’s Partner in Justice, Security and Safety explains, “We can’t just walk into a prison to support offenders, the partnership with Key4Life will help to develop and facilitate KPMG’s volunteer mentor programme and we have the professionals to help us.”
 
“We are hugely grateful to KPMG in championing this important partnership that will help the charity to offer high quality mentoring and coaching support to the young men throughout the programme onto a positive path and sustained employment.” Eva Hamilton MBE, Founder and CEO, Key4Life
