Saints inside programme incorporates both Northampton Saints Foundation and rugby’s own core values through classroom and physical activity to reduce reoffending within UK prisons.
At Northampton Saints Foundation we believe education and training in prisons play a key role in improving the mental health and the employability of individuals upon release.
Saints Inside gives learners the opportunity to increase their confidence, become productive and learn new skills to reduce criminality, isolation and help change their lives for the better.
How does Saints Inside programme work?
- 12-week programme
- Pitch-based rugby sessions

"He was so happy and it has given him such a positive boost to now get his category D and finish his sentence. I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for him as it has often been a rocky road in prison and what many people don’t realise is that family are taken on this journey too and things like this where people like yourselves take time to help people are just so fantastic".Brother in Law of a learner
