Project 507 is delighted to announce that we have been selected to deliver two specialist CFO3 projects in the South East of England in partnership with our prime contractor, Ixion Holdings Ltd.

CFO3 is funded by NOMS Co-financing Organisation and the European Social Fund, aiming to promote social inclusion and help offenders to progress into employment, training and education and access services that will positively impact on their future. Delivering services in prison, through-the-gates and in local communities from 2015 to 2020, Project 507 will support high risk young adults who are gang-associated, and/or relocating upon release from custody.  Our innovative programmes, including 1:1 and group support, will reduce social exclusion, antisocial behaviours, gang violence and the effects of emotional trauma.

Whitney Iles, CEO of Project 507, said:
‘We’re pleased to have secured a long-term subcontract with Ixion which will enable us to enact lasting impact and positive change in young adult offenders across the South East and London. In the face of ongoing challenges in addressing youth violence and gang behaviours, especially in the highest risk offenders, we’re looking forward to showing that Project 507’s unique programmes – which are designed in collaboration with our beneficiaries – really do make a difference’.
