The Humber Tri Challenge

Help James Britton and friends as they tackle the 63-mile Humber Tri Challenge to raise vital funds for Forward at The Bridges in Hull!

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%
