A Band of Brothers

A Band of Brothers logo

An award-winning charity helping young men grow and develop, improving their lives and the communities they live in.

A Band of Brothers (ABOB) works with young men involved in the criminal justice system. We provide them with the support they need to make the transition to an adulthood free of crime, and filled with a sense of belonging, connection and purpose.

The young men we meet have often experienced or witnessed domestic violence. They may have been abused or else kept someone else's abuse a secret. They may have lived in care or experienced neglect. They may have grown up where drug and alcohol abuse is commonplace and where positive adult role models are in short supply.

Our work transforms the lives of young men and their communities, whilst saving the state (and ultimately the taxpayer) £40,000 a year for each avoided incarceration. Instead, we create well-rounded men who contribute back to society with healthy aspirations and a renewed sense of wellbeing.
