About us

Langley House Trust was formed over 50 years ago by a group of Christians spurred by passion, commitment and a desire to see the lives of offenders changed for the better.

_dsc9167-webToday, we are an innovative Christian charity that provides specialist housing, programmes and support services in the community, and targeted advice in prisons, for people seeking to live crime-free.

Part of the Langley House Trust group, Kainos Community transforms lives through Challenge to Change, a pioneering prison wing community and post-release mentoring programme.


We have one of the lowest reconviction rates in the country – just 2.6% whilst people are in our housing – making communities safer across the country.

Every day we see lives transformed, addictions broken and families restored.

Our organisation is established on Christian principles and foundations but our services are for anyone – those with faith or indeed no faith. We work tenaciously to see lives changed for the better.

We believe our approach of providing strong firm boundaries whilst supporting and encouraging individuals produces long-lasting change.

We are committed to helping men and women live crime-free and positively impacting their communities for a safer and better future.

Langley is also –

  • A Housing Association, regulated by the Homes and Communities Agency
  • Registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide registered care at several sites.

In 2013 we merged with Kainos Community to expand our services from the community into prison. Find out more here.
