LAT provides resettlement and rehabilitation support for individuals involved at all stages of the criminal justice system from the point of arrest; as well as for their families and dependants.
The charity delivers ETE, housing, family support and resettlement interventions both in prisons and in the community. Specific interventions are offered for women. LAT works with all offence types, and has particular specialism in resettlement of men convicted of sexual offences.
LAT delivers a number of national programmes including Liaison and Diversion and CFO3, as well as local innovations such as Young Oasis which helps children living with a parent or guardian with a drug or alcohol addiction. LAT also introduced the 'departure lounge' concept to prison, starting UK's first one at HMP Lincoln in 2015. Detainees at IRC are also supported
Volunteers are a key aspect of support, and individuals including peers, are recruited and trained for various volunteering and mentoring roles.
