Reformation Community Project (RCP) is an organisation that began in 2001 and sought to reach out to communities across London, through intervention and prevention, transforming lives of young people who have been disenfranchised and marginalised by society. In its advocacy work RCP have seen lives transformed dramatically. Many young people who were indulging in gun and knife crime primarily due to their gang activities, have left the life of misdemeanour. RCP have supported and helped countless families, educating parents on how to engage with the young people and how to prevent them continuing in the life that is seen to be destructive.
Through such support and engagement, many parents now work voluntarily alongside RCP, and many young people are actively involved within the activities of RCP allowing them the opportunity to develop their confidence, equipping them with skills necessary to allow them to function effectively in all areas of their own personal lives. Such skills as learning how to communicate positively and engage with the workforce, and allowing young people the opportunity to work as voluntary workers, has resulted in their ability to support other young people encouraging and deterring them from a life of crime.
Many of the RCP workers are people that have been affected in one way or another from a life of crime. As reformed people they are apply able to engage with young people and also individuals who are from the streets, mentoring and counselling them during their process of transition.
RCP with all different ages of individuals from the ages of 8-25 and has a high track record of transforming lives of individuals of all different walks of life and different nationalities.
