The Forward Trust acquires Vision Housing

Vision Housing, a London based charity and social enterprise that supports prisoners into housing, has been acquired by The Forward Trust.

Vision Housing’s service offer is a complimentary addition to Forward’s existing substance misuse and employment services for ex-offenders and people in recovery from addiction.  The staff from Vision will continue working from their office in Croydon until December, and will thereafter be based at Forward’s Head Office in Vauxhall.

Mike Trace, Chief Executive of The Forward Trust, said: ‘Vision Housing has established an innovative way of making private rented accommodation available to prisoners on the day of release. We know that safe accommodation is a key factor in helping to tackle re-offending and reducing the chance of someone in recovery relapsing. We are looking forward to developing that model to meet the needs of more of our beneficiaries in the coming months.’
