Our Mission

Working with men subject to the Irish Criminal Justice System.
We envision a future where all those with an offending history are afforded opportunities to develop their full potential, reintegrate with families and society and to attain employment.

Effect positive change

Bridge’s mission is to work collaboratively with individual offenders and partner agencies to unlock potential and effect positive change. We aim to create safer communities by developing and supporting implementation of innovative, evidence-based responses and practices that reduce re-offending.

unlocking potential

For the past 25 years, Bridge has been unlocking potential and sharing innovation. We are a charity organisation that is based in the heart of Dublin working with men on release from prison. We’ve used our experiences and lessons learnt to develop innovative ways to bring about sustainable change for our clients.

partnership approach

Through our partnership approach with criminal justice agencies, we actively remove barriers to progression in order to create the right environment for our clients to flourish. Our clients become change agents in their own futures, often for the first time.
