We create positive change you can feel.
If we want to be the difference, we first need to inspire change and create a positive social impact in the communities in which we live and work. And we do this by providing opportunities for service users to make positive changes to their behaviours and lifestyles, which ultimately helps them reduce their risk of reoffending.
Right now, we provide the following services directly:
- Rehabilitation services across London and Thames Valley CRCs
- Custodial and accommodation services to the Rainsbrook Secure Training Centre
But we know we can’t break the cycle of reoffending ourselves, which is why we work in partnership with, and signpost service users to, organisations who specialise in working with ex-offenders to meet their specific needs. Put simply, if we can’t provide the necessary interventions ourselves, our service users know that we’ll always find someone who can.
We work with the following organisations – each of which shares our vision and purpose of supporting vulnerable people, reducing reoffending and protecting the public by enabling safe communities:
- Thames Valley Partnership
- Catch 22
- St Mungos
- Advance Minerva
- Milton Keynes College
Wherever we work, we create change you can feel. And we deliver a difference to everyone we work with – and everyone who works at MTC.
A lot of the time, service users have never had respect before, and I like to think that I’m the difference they need to inspire change in their lives.
Service users look up to me, which I think is a good thing, because a lot of them have not had any direction in life… that’s the difference I want them to feel.
I have lots of positive conversations with service users, and this is definitely where I feel like I’m able to be the difference they’re looking for.
It’s always our aim to be the difference in someone’s life. It makes me feel so much better… and then I know I’ve done a great job.
We’re not in it for the money. Being the difference by making small changes in people’s lives is why we’re here.
I know for certain, without a doubt, that I wouldn’t be here today without MTC's constant support and encouragement. They have definitely made a meaningful change to my life.
My strength is that I’ve got a lot of patience, even in difficult situations, and I think that’s where I make a difference to people.
