Pathways to Change

The letters P2C (representing Pathways to Change) pictured next to four inward facing arrowsPathways to Change, Elderfield, is an exciting new rehabilitative community programme from Kainos Community, in partnership with Langley House Trust.

Pathways to Change aims to help men coming from prison to live crime-free. Those who take part engage in a core programme based on cognitive behavioural therapy which challenges patterns of thinking and behaviour that previously led to criminal lifestyles.

Participants also take part in a structured programme which incorporates victim awareness, community enterprise, training and social value projects which serve the local community. Participants develop their skills to increase employment opportunities for when they move on to independent living.
