           the sozo project
The Sozo Women's Resettlement Project is committed to providing spiritual and pastoral support for women leaving prison wishing to re-shape their lives. This support ministry is sustained through a national network of Christian volunteers.
   
Our Vision
Our vision is for women released from prison to encounter a new beginning, a growth in faith, a fulfilling life, and for a national reduction in re-offending.

Our Mission
Our mission is to help women to re-shape their lives through Christian support after release from prison, and to reflect God’s forgiveness in the community.

Women leaving prison at the end of a custodial sentence face many problems. While there are some prison aftercare and “ex-offender” schemes around the country already, they are usually localised and frequently focused on men. Women released from prison are often vulnerable and have specific, spiritual, social and practical needs as they return to society and prepare for resettlement in the community.

 
 
We believe that God’s forgiveness changes lives and that Jesus was involved in restorative justice. We are there for women who want to make a fresh start, resist re-offending and reform their lives when they are returned to the community at the end of their prison sentence.
 
 
  If you believe in forgiveness and healing and are willing to devote some time, compassion, listening skills and a little practical help in this important and fulfilling Christian ministry, then find out more about the sozo women's resettlement project.
