Atos mentors support ex-offenders from Manchester prison

Volunteers from the Atos Antz Mentor Programme went to HM Prison Forest Bank in Manchester this week to engage with their mentees. Our colleagues are committing their time and energy to supporting mentees in their journey towards rehabilitation. This is the first time the Manchester project has worked directly within the prison; highly encouraging feedback was received from the session, with one young man reporting that he felt a sense of positive self-worth after the session that had been missing.

Damien Shevlin, SVP Human Resources UK&I and Executive Sponsor for the Programme, said: “This programme is a great example of how we are trying to make a positive difference and I am proud to be personally involved as a mentor”.

The Atos Antz Mentor Programme supports ex-offenders and people who have experienced social challenges in their communities within Manchester and London. The Programme aligns with Government priorities of rehabilitation, crime prevention and reduction, job creation and mental health. Antz is leading the way in purposeful giving and social value, focusing on outcomes to help society.
