About Us

Our mission is to empower individuals from a prison, military, homeless or care background

Inside Connection Support CIC was founded in 2017 by ex-offender John Burton and son Ben. We aim to be the number one provider of joined-up supported services for vulnerable individuals exiting prison, care or military systems and those who are homeless. 

Our ambitions are to change the way reform and rehabilitation is identified and delivered from the ground up through the provision of sustainable, supported services that enhance the personal, social, emotional and intellectual development of the most vulnerable people in society. 

We aim to offer greater social mobility in training & education with the many courses we have available and with further employment and housing opportunities that empower the individuals, families and whole communities. We bring together organisations to see what more can be achieved, and we ensure that any funding bids and donations benefit those who want to change their lives and make a positive contribution to society - regardless of their background or previous reputation. 

There has never been a greater need for a fresh approach to tackling some of the underlying problems in our society or a more important time to act than right now. Thousands of vulnerable people exiting the prison, care home or military systems are being released into communities without the platform to succeed like the rest of us.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower vulnerable individuals who have been marginalised by homelessness or affected by leaving prison, the care system or the military. We provide a holistic platform for change and a chance at a sustainable life, through education, training, employment, housing and on-going bespoke support.

Our Vision

To bring together under one roof services supporting reform, rehabilitation and opportunity. To help those who have struggled when exiting “the system” and offer a chance at moving their lives forward with positivity and hope. From the high numbers of individuals re-offending to ex-service personnel, prisoners to care leavers left homeless and hopeless, we will provide them opportunities tailored to them with a support package to match.
