At Making it Out we're trying to do things differently, so we can be a little difficult to define. Resting somewhere between supportive charity and a design agency or manufacturing business and resettlement service, we intend to bridge gaps between different parts of society and to build better relationships that reduce the likelihood of crime being committed.
We work directly with local prisons and probation services as well as local statutory and voluntary services to identify individuals that are in need of some structured occupational support, either on release from prison, or to help avoid going there in the first place. If you think you or someone else could benefit from spending some time making some fabulous things with us then get in touch or use our referral form.
SUPPORT MAKING IT OUT
Now that we're a charity we're giving people who believe in what we are doing the chance to support our work either financially or through volunteering their time to help us grow. We want all of the charitable donations we receive to go directly to the charity and we use wonderful.org to ensure this is the case.

What we're up to...
During April and May this year Making It Out have been working on a mammoth shop fitting at Emmaus in Portslade Old Village.
In their old chapel we have made and installed bespoke cabinets, mobile hanging units, tables and a unique floating ceiling made from off-cuts produced during the job.
The BBC came to visit as we neared the end of the project and discus the collaboration between us and Emmaus.
