aims to support the integration process of people with criminal convictions and bring about positive change in their
lives, and by doing so, help to prevent further harm in the community.
The work that we do is complex and
multi-layered. We work with people who have caused harm and who have been
harmed and are dealing with a range of issues including addiction, mental
health issues and homelessness all of which are compounded by their offending behaviour.
To this end, PACE
works from an assisted desistance and strengths-based approach. This approach enables us to move beyond risk and into a safer integration into society for our clients.
PACE is funded by The Probation Service and is supported by CDETB, POBAL, An Garda Síochána among other agencies.

whilst promoting good governance and standards. Some examples include: - The Charities Regulator's
Charities Governance Code - we are actively embedding this through the
organisation at the moment. - The Statement of Recommended
Practice (SORP) - we have adopted this for our 2019 Annual Report. - The General Data Protection

clear actions to further protect personal data at PACE.
