Switchback case study for small charities and social change
Field: Criminal justice
Switchback works in London with young men aged 18-30 on release from prison (‘Trainees’), providing one-to-one support through-the-gate and in-job training. They have 15 full and part-time staff. Funding is a mix of donations, legacies and investments, and annual income is just over £500,000.
This case study looks at the organisations’ transition from being solely focused on delivering services to getting in influencing criminal justice policy and practice. It is part of the small charities and social change study.
