Tempus Novo

Overview of work

Founded in 2014 by two former prison officers, Tempus Novo works in prisons to help offenders transform their lives and reduce their chance of reoffending through employment. These prisoners continue to work with Tempus Novo upon release to gain employment, receiving mentorship and support for a minimum of 12 months. Through this program of mentorship for both employee and employer, and providing connections to an array of services, Tempus Novo has been able to give hundreds of ex-offenders a second chance.
