This project will continue this work with the aim of supporting young people who are in prison to gain new skills and qualifications that enable them to turn their lives around and gain meaningful employment on their release.

Many young people struggle on release from prison, which often leads them to reoffend and then to find themselves in prison again. This project will use the core values of rugby to help break this spiral and to enable participants to re-establish themselves back in society to help make a positive contribution moving forwards.

Speaking about the project, Tom Leader, manager of HITZ Sale Sharks, said: “We would like to urge all Sharks fans to get behind the project and the work that the Community Trust is doing to support young people in the area.

“Our aim is to prevent young people from reoffending when they have been released from prison by helping them into training, employment or further education and to help them to turn their lives around, benefitting both themselves and the whole community.”
