GCFEO is a registered charity working with ex-offenders in three main areas, accommodation, community and employment. Practical and emotional support in these areas assists in rehabilitation back into the community and reduces repeat offending. GCFEO has one full time member of staff, two part time and 22 volunteers who come from all Christian denominations and act as mentors, prison visitors and support staff.

Current prisoners can link in with GCFEO for support and on release a mentor can be matched to an individual ex-prisoner. They act as a befriender who can assist in daily activities, liaise with statutory agencies or just meet for a coffee and a chat.
