BLAST is about change. Change happens through building relationships in prison, through-the-gate and into the community. Students on the BLAST 5-week programme, develop new ways of thinking about themselves, confronting their past and developing new perspectives on their future. BLAST also teaches life and employability skills for effective resettlement.
All this is done within a co-operative, open and creative learning environment where relationships are valued and students feel confident to plan their future, with the benefit of ongoing mentoring support from people they have come to trust.
