Services and Supports

Pre-release Planning and Transition Support

Are you getting released from a correctional centre? Since inception, Unlocking the Gates Services Society has provided support to individuals leaving correctional facilities in British Columbia. UTG Peer Mentors connect with individuals during their stay in custody to help with pre-release planning and offer peer support during the transition days following release. 

Connecting early allows us to help plan for your release and increases the chances of a successful reintegration.
