Switchback effects real, lasting change through consistent, motivational relationships with a Switchback Mentor on both sides of the prison gate. We support young Londoners to change their relationship with society.

We share what we have learned to inspire change across the justice system and beyond.

Switchback Trainees are five times less likely to return to custody.

Our Purpose

Switchback’s purpose is to enable young people to find a way out of the justice system and build a stable, rewarding life they can be proud of.


People only do what they know, and that depends where you grow up. To me, I knew how to sell drugs. In my community it’s just normal to do crime. Switchback taught me and pushed me so much. I’ve learned to forget about crime. I’ve been shown a different route. - Ahmed, Switchback Trainee
