Going Global

In our first six years, we have seen over 70 Team Members through our programme. As more doors to partner with prisons open, our work integrating ex-offenders will continue to increase. In the next five years, we plan to establish enterprises across the UK with sites highlighted in Scotland, Midlands, Yorkshire and Wales, as well as more opportunities to grow our work in Manchester and London.

The Message Trust in South Africa is our first international hub to replicate our model and successfully launched two coffee shops offering employment and support to prison leavers in Cape Town.

In 2020 Message Canada will be partnering with Coastal Church Vancouver to launch a Cafe employing the homeless and people with addiction in Central Downtown Eastside.
