More about Equinox Care

Equinox Care was established in 1986 and joined the Social Interest Group on the 1st of October 2014.

Equinox Care provides individually tailored support, health care and recovery to excluded people who experience: mental ill health; drug dependence; alcohol dependence; homelessness; forensic history; or any combination of these things. They support people who are sometimes seen as too difficult to deal with – forgotten vulnerable people who often fall through society’s safety net. The heart and soul of Equinox is providing hope without exclusion to all those who come to them. They do this across London and in Brighton.

More about Penrose Options

Penrose was set up in 1969 by two ex-offenders and a number of volunteers to provide housing for ex-offenders.

Penrose provides both practical support and health care for vulnerable people who struggle with day to day living, mental illness, personality disorders, substance and alcohol misuse, offending backgrounds or are simply vulnerable because they face complex, chaotic lives and issues that we help them overcome. Penrose also provides very specialist rehabilitation, technical and therapeutic support that aids recovery reduces offending or changes behaviour.

Penrose specialises in working with people who have been excluded from other services as they present personal or public safety risks. They do this across London and in Luton.

Most recently Penrose won (with MTC Novo) the CRC for London. Penrose Criminal Justice Services will provide the rehabilitation coordination within the 7 male rehabilitation Prisons in London and supervise 4,000 adult males in the community once they finish their licence period.
