Switchback’s donors are the reason we are able to help more than 500 young men each year on their journey out of the justice system.
Without your support, none of what we do would be possible. All of our funding comes from people and organisations just like you, who believe in the power of long-term, unconditional support. You’re brilliant.
Click on your preferred payment method to make a one-off or regular donation. If you would like to donate via bank transfer, set up a direct debit, or have any other questions about donating to Switchback please email email@example.com.
Switchback offers the Trainees we work with the support they need for as long as they need it. That means they can come back to us when things get tough, wobbly, or they just need a chat with a friendly face. Our open-ended, unconditional support is what makes Switchback different – and by leaving a gift in your will, you can help us continue to make that support available for as long as it’s needed.
Leaving a gift in your will is a personal decision, but one which gives you control after you have gone. Getting the right advice is important, and a good place to start is with the Government’s guide to leaving a legacy gift.
If you do choose to support Switchback in this way, then we promise to use it in the best possible way to help more young adult offenders live life completely differently.
If you let us know about your decision, we can keep you updated as often or as little as you like as to how we are supporting Trainees. You can change your mind about your gift at any time.
If you’re interested in discussing leaving a gift to Switchback in your will, then please call us on 020 7650 8989 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
Whether it’s running a marathon, hiking over a mountain, avoiding chocolate for a year, or keeping quiet for a whole day… there are loads of ways to raise funds for Switchback while doing something challenging but fun!

Join the team!
Do you want to join a pioneering small charity supporting young Londoners to find their way out of the justice system and build stable, rewarding lives? You’d be joining an award-winning organisation with sector-leading impact: while around half of those leaving prison every year back inside within 12 months – just 9% of Switchback Trainees reoffend. At the same time, we draw on the powerful insights of Switchback Trainees, and Switchback’s rich evidence base, to challenge social and racial injustice across the system.
You’d be joining Switchback’s friendly and fast-growing team next to Spitalfields Market in the heart of East London, next to the café where many Switchback Trainees work after prison. We offer flexible working, excellent benefits and training, and we have fun too. Above all, we’re a values-led organisation; make sure they resonate with you. We’re also determined that our team is representative of our Trainees, so we’d love to hear from people from black or Asian backgrounds or lived experience of the justice system. All appointments made on merit. This is an exciting time for Switchback as we’re aiming to reach even more young Londoners while doing more to tackle social and racial injustice in the UK. Join us!
