A Band of Brothers Portsmouth

COVID-19 Update: Service being run via ZOOM

A Band of Brothers (ABOB) work with young men aged 18-25 from troubled backgrounds, such as those involved in the criminal justice system or leaving care. We provide them with the support they need to make the transition to an adulthood free of crime and full of connection, meaning and purpose. We do this by building a local community of older men willing to undergo the training needed in order to step up and mentor the younger men.
