Tempus Novo (meaning New Time)

Registered Charity Number: 1157079
Doncaster, South Yorkshire

Tempus Novo is an award-winning charity focused on working with serving prisoners and ex-offenders looking for a way out of crime. We work with repeat offenders to get them into employment and break the cycle of crime that damages our country’s social fabric and costs the taxpayer several billion pounds every year.

Tempus Novo’s unique strength is its direct links into – and understanding of – the British prisons system and those within it. Founded in 2014 by two serving Prison Officers at HMP Leeds, Tempus Novo operates both inside and outside prisons to identify offenders committed to transforming their lives by helping prepare them, both practically and emotionally, for the world of work.

We work with a growing number of employers in and around Yorkshire who share our vision and our values and are willing to give offenders a second chance. Crucially, however, we don’t ask employers to hire our ex-offenders as a gesture of goodwill, but because they are the right people for the job.

In 2014-15, more than 90 per cent of those we brought to interview got the job.

Together with our President, former Cabinet minister and ex-offender Jonathan Aitken, along with our Trustees, Tempus Novo also enjoys a strong relationship with both ministers and officials at the Ministry of Justice and elsewhere inside Government.
