Tempus Novo

Tempus Novo featured in CSJ report “A Woman – Centred Approach”

As a Centre For Social Justice Alliance member it is with huge pride that we featured in the recent report “A Woman – Centred Approach”.

Perfect timing as we have just been approached to expand in to the female prison estate, with both New Hall and Askham Grange prisons.

The Centre For Social Justice was formed in 2004 by Ian Duncan-Smith. Their vision aligns with that of Tempus Novo “giving people in the UK who are experiencing the worst disadvantage and injustice every possible opportunity to reach their full potential.”

 

In assisting ex-offenders move from dependency and recidivism to employment and independence, charities like Tempus Novo, working with Women’s Centres, could achieve even greater results for more female offenders through access to the Transformation Fund and a new strand of ROTL and ERCP.

It was indeed the report by the CSJ “Locked Up Potential” written by our now President Jonathan Aitken, which inspired the thinking to set up Tempus Novo!

We are proud to call them a partner and delighted to say they are led by a Yorkshireman (from Leeds) Andy Cook CEO.

Below is the Case Study

“Tempus Novo is a charity based in Leeds, created and run by two former prison officers and seeks to connect prisoners with employment opportunities on release. Tempus Novo has also recently demonstrated how ROTL can provide real opportunities for female offenders to engage with work and other activities. One recent female prisoner, Karla, currently on ROTL, and in employment has secured a promotion at work – evidencing the opportunity that the appropriate use of ROTL can provide to helping deliver positive outcomes for society on release.”
