What we do

Every day Nacro helps thousands of people build the independence and resilience they need to look forward to their futures. We offer:

Practical help: Our education, housing, justice, and health and wellbeing services support people to put in place the things they need to move forwards and build positive futures. We work collaboratively with other services and providers.

Personalised support and advice: Our practical provision is successful because our approach is one of personalised, individual support for the people we help and their families. Nacro staff are allies of the people we support, standing by their side and fighting their corner.

Campaigning, policy and research: We know that our success is often achieved despite the systems we are working within. So we use our front-line experience, combined with sound research, to campaign for policy and systems change.

I was a heroin addict for nearly 40 years. After leaving prison, I came to Nacro housing. If you haven’t got a roof, you’ve got nothing really. I’ve had quite a bit of support round me, and I've been off my methadone a few months now. I’m looking forward to getting a job and finishing the book I’m writing.
