Further Information:

Apex Scotland is a charity organisation that works across the whole of Scotland to reduce reoffending, promote desistance, tackle deprivation and make communities safer. Whatever their background or circumstances, Apex want to ensure that those who are at risk of offending and reoffending are given the education, support and opportunities they need to change their behaviour, become effective citizens and lead fulfilling lives (About us (apexscotland.org.uk). Apex Scotland currently offer The Labyrinth Programme to individuals who have been involved in offending behaviour, including sexual and domestic offending. The Labyrinth programme ensures that participants move closer to work as they are equipped with a holistic toolkit of skills, competencies and positive attitudes to prepare them for this. Participants gain self-confidence and motivation to progress as they gain a better awareness and understanding of their personal barriers and gain support to tackle these. Through initial intensive one-to-one support, participants gain skills to be more independent and self-reliant. Participants will achieve fundamental employability skills that enable them to identify, pursue and sustain employment opportunities for the long term.
