About Langley House Trust


Langley House Trust is an innovative, brave and far-reaching Christian charity that provides specialist housing, programmes and support services in the community for individuals with a history of offending behaviour, who are seeking to live crime-free lives. Since 1958, we have earned an enviable reputation for reducing reoffending. Our reconviction rate for people in our housing is one of the lowest in the Country, standing at 3%. Regardless of a person’s history, our passion is to change every life for the better, working with people of all faiths and none. Our person-centred support works and it changes lives!
