Description: Apex Trust was founded in 1965 by Neville Vincent, a retired barrister, who subsequently became Chairman of Bovis Holdings. The work of the Trust is based on the belief that:
'If an ex prisoner can be found a job, which, first provides him a reasonable standard of living for himself and his family, and second, fulfills his own idea of himself and thus engages his self respect, the responsibility of his eventual return to prison will be diminished'.
From the two pilot programmes set up in Pentonville and Wormwood Scrubs Prisons, Apex Trust identified a special need for a service for 'white collar' offenders and sex offenders. During the 1970s, the success of the programme resulted in a request from the Courts and the Probation Service for a similar service in other parts of the country and the Trust extended its services to all offenders, including those under the supervision of the Probation Service.
During 1986-87, the Trust expanded by setting up twenty new MSC programmes for the unemployed. These included centres in Merseyside, Sunderland, Leeds and London. In 1988, a new development programme was established in Scotland, which eventually became the basis of the independent organisation, Apex Scotland.
