People Arise Now (PAN) is a charity which provides rehabilitative support to ex-offenders and stabilising support to families affected by the stigma of crime. It was set up by concerned community members who considered the levels of crime in society and wanted to make a difference.
Based in Fulham and Sutton and covering the London area, PAN works with a range of professionals to ensure ex-offenders are offered the necessary support needed for long-term employment and successful resettlement in the community.
Taking the holistic approach, PAN is concerned with the individual and works with families to help achieve stability, which generally leads to reduced reoffending.
Our aim is simple: to create safer and happier communities.
