Novus has built successful and effective partnerships that work to the benefit of offenders and ex-offenders.
From the long-standing working relationships to the more recent partnerships we have forged, we are delighted to join forces in transforming the lives of children, young people and adults through the provision of high quality learning and employability skills.
Working with the Ministry of Justice, the Youth Justice Board and the National Offender Management Service as well as a wide range of visionary charities and organisations, we strive to raise our learners’ aspirations, support them back into purposeful activity, prepare them for the world of work and consequently reduce the risk of re-offending.
Our partners offer crucial strategic input into the delivery of our services and provide an insight into their sector, ensuring Novus evolves and our work remains of the highest quality.
We are always open to new and innovative ways to extend our reach and put even more people on the path to a crime-free future, so if you are interested in partnering with us please get in touch.Partner with us
