We are the specialist organisation which for over 25 years has contributed to a safer Scotland by working with offenders, ex-offenders and those at risk to give them the necessary skills to change their behaviour and lead fulfilling lives.

Apex Scotland’s work is about reducing re-offending, promoting desistance, tackling deprivation and making communities safer. In all that we do, we make best use of our resources to bring lasting value to individuals and society.

Whatever their background or circumstances, we want to ensure that those who are at risk of (re)offending are given the education, support and opportunities they need to change their behaviour, become effective citizens and lead fulfilling lives.

We understand that there are many reasons why people get involved in crime. Often the people who use our services have been both the victims and perpetrators of crime. Their needs are both complex and varied and we believe that each person should receive the service that is best for them. Our staff are committed to engaging with the people they work with, helping them to progress through the areas in their lives which, at that time, require more support and guidance towards a positive destination.
