“Switchback is the best mentoring programme we’ve seen.”
Head of Reducing Reoffending, HMP & YOI Isis

“A revolutionary project… The reoffending rate for Switchback trainees is so astonishingly low that this week it was presented with the Robin Corbett Award for Prisoner Rehabilitation at the House of Lords.”
Daily Mirror

“Switchback offers a commitment that really changes lives. This is why they are the River Cottage chosen charity and why I have joined them to celebrate their many successes at each and every one of their annual events.”
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, River Cottage

“Switchback is doing something really important. They are succeeding in helping people turn their lives around.”
Juliet Lyon, Director, The Prison Reform Trust

“With ongoing discussion both inside and outside government on how to improve probation and resettlement support, the voices of successful organisations like Switchback will be crucial in the coming months and years. Policy-makers should take advantage of the expertise that these organisations can offer and ensure they are included in the conversation.”
Clinks, the national membership organisation for charities working in the criminal justice system (full blog here)

“Switchback will always be an integral part of our resettlement message in the prison… we have examples of incredible individual achievements to demonstrate the quality of your work.”
Niall Bryant, Head of Safer Prisons & Equality, HMP Isis

“Switchback aren’t like a lot of organisations because they actually do what they say they are going to do.”
Graeme Hawkins, Governor HMP & YOI Isis

“Every time we meet you guys, we feel more enthused about everything… [we have] a better sense of purpose to keep on creating jobs and helping people climb their way up the ladder.”
