Tailored Futures CIC was established in 2014 as a social enterprise that saw a gap in the engagement between statutory organisations and people on probation (especially high-risk individuals and individuals with sexual offences). This very issue pivoted the organisation towards creating a personalised service that provides people on probation with the needed tools and skills to help them combat daily challenges.
Tailored Futures also noticed that rubric used to engage with people on probation was not producing the needed results as little time was given to build relationships. For this reason, people on probation often disengage from said organisations. Tailored Futures, having witnessed this – made a mission to correct this.
Tailored Futures’ approach towards this issue included a shift from the usual mandatory engagement to voluntary engagement. Engagement with people on probation allowed them to identify the root of issues and create long term solutions. With this approach, Tailored Futures has been able to work with over 1000 people on probation with different complexities through a specialised education, training and employment service that prioritises people’s needs.
Since we became operational, we have delivered our services to several Approved Premises, LDUs, Youth Offending Teams, DWPs; and even worked with NPS where we successfully supported People on Probation into education and training, full-time paid employment across a range of industries, from fitness to hospitality and construction. We have also supported many People on Probation, with finding safe and secure accommodation. As a direct result of our work, very few, if any of the People on Probation that have engaged with us go on to re-offend.

Within a week of coming out of prison, Tailored Futures put me on a CSCS course, and two days after I finished the course, they found my work. I still can’t believe it.
