RECOOP awarded grant by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation

Wednesday, May 22nd 2019 - Paul Grainge

RECOOP has been successful in its application to the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation to fund some new development work to help even more older service-users across the country.

RECOOP has received funding over three years to develop a suite of commercial services, training and interventions to offer to Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service in order to help them best support the differing needs of those they are managing who are aged over 50.

The over-arching aim of RECOOP is to reduce re-offending through the provision of meaningful activity, resettlement services and by addressing the health and social care inequalities faced by this marginalised under-served group.

We are one of the very few organisations working specifically with this group and aspire to be the leader in the delivery of knowledge and expertise to older people who come into contact with the criminal justice system and offer support to the staff who work with them.  The development of our services and activities is influenced and shaped by the experiences of our service-users.

We intend to market and promote our new commercial services more widely across the country.  We will work to get more prison services set up over the term of the grant to support more individuals and generate new income streams.  This is a very exciting time for the charity.
