Revolving Doors is a charity working across England to change systems and improve services for people with multiple problems, including poor mental health, who are in contact with the criminal justice system. Problems including mental ill-health, drug and alcohol abuse, crime, homelessness and domestic violence can so often amplify each other, trapping some of society’s most vulnerable people in the downward spiral of the Revolving Door. We are not a service provider but our fresh thinking helps other organisations make a life-changing difference. Our work as a charity sets us apart because, unlike others, we don’t just focus on any single problem. Instead, we look at the person and their whole spectrum of individual needs ─ help with alcohol problems and mental health difficulties at the same time, for example. The experiences of those who have been through the system – and often been failed by it ─ are at the centre of everything we do. With their unique insights, they now play an active part in changing things for the better.
