Providing support to offenders

New Leaf provides help and support to offenders who plan to resettle in Oxfordshire, Berkshire or Buckinghamshire including Milton Keynes. Through mentoring, we aim to help people re-settle effectively, and address successfully any issues and challenges they have. Our aim is to reduce re-offending and to help people to fulfil their potential.
