OUR MISSION

Worldwide, the increased use of incarceration has led to the imprisonment and detention of over 9.9 million men and women as of September 2010. Forgotten by most in the wider society, more than 90 percent of those incarcerated will some day return to the wider community.

In most countries, ill-prepared communities are unwilling to receive them and, within 2 years, more than 50 percent of ex-offenders are returned to prison for parole violations or for committing new offences. In some nations, the re-offending rate is as high as 80 percent!

Many of these men and women come from areas and relationships that have contributed to their stay in prison. Caring for Ex-Offenders (CFEO) has found that where organisations and churches are ready to help in practical ways, the likelihood of individuals re-offending is greatly reduced.

CFEO develops and models “what works” and best practices in partnership with law enforcement, statutory agencies, offender support agencies, victim support agencies and the wider society to produce safer communities for all.
