Our vision for NoOffence! has always been to bring justice people together to overcome barriers to rehabilitation. We believe the solution to complex justice problems lie with the people. NoOffence! belongs to everyone: those who engage with us and who we consider as our ‘members.’ Without you, NoOffence! would not exist. We now engage with almost 30,000 people in over 60 countries!
What we have created with NoOffence! is a vehicle to support and influence positive change. As an organisation, we are solution focused, we are most concerned with what is needed to be done to make a positive difference to the lives of everyone who is involved with justice, whether working within the sector or having been ‘in’ justice and indeed including the victims.
There is not another organisation doing what we do, so we are always treading new ground, which is very exciting but also very scary! We quite simply did not know what we would need to do to achieve our vision to bring people together when we started (especially with no funding) but with input from our Advisory Board, listening to the needs and suggestions of our members and the amazing support we have had from so many people, together with our ability to develop an income generating trading model which has brought us to where we are today.
We describe ourselves as an information exchange organisation. We make it possible for people to access a variety of information, news, debate and people and from that comes the direction in which we, and those working with justice need to take. It sounds simple, I wish it was!
We continue to develop who we are and what we do through projects such as our Redemption & Justice Awards and Unlock Your Future and we hope that we will always continue to develop to meet the needs of our members.
