Forward launches new Enterprise Fund

Social Investment Business (SIB) and The Forward Trust are pleased to announce the launch of the Forward Enterprise Fund.

Our Impact

The original ‘Rapt’ 12 step treatment programme, showed a 65% reduction in the volume of crime committed by programme graduates, compared to a comparison group completing less intensive programmes.
For every 100 people completing Forward's 'Rapt' programmes an estimated £6.3 million is saved through reduced crime and re sentencing costs
The 'Blue Sky' employment model reduces re-offending by up to 23%
