Friends of Blue Sky

The work of Blue Sky would not be possible without the kindness, generosity and dedication of others. At the heart of this invaluable support is a special group of people called the ‘Friends of Blue Sky’ who come from a range of backgrounds and who support the organisation in a variety of ways.

In acknowledgement of their support, ‘Friends of Blue Sky’ are invited to:

  • Receive newsletters and special updates
  • Attend exclusive events (such as an evening at Speaker’s House)
  • Network with other Friends
  • Visit diverse locations where we work (from a women’s high security prison to a high-tech waste recycling plant)
  • Meet Blue Sky’s employees to understand first-hand the impact that our work has on their lives

“I became a Patron of Blue Sky because its work is inspiring in its vision and professional in its execution.  Employment opportunities for ex-prisoners transform their lives. 

Blue Sky has blazed a trail in this all important field of offender rehabilitation, making a huge impact on the national battle to reduce reoffending”

Jonathan Aitken, Blue Sky Patron


“Blue Sky has demonstrated over the years of its existence that it knows how to give ex-offenders the skills and experience which can enable them to get and keep work. Doing that makes us all winners: the person who stops offending, and the rest of us who are less likely to be victims of crime.

There are lots of people who want to help charities working with appealing and vulnerable groups of people.  I think those who have the courage and skill to work with less obviously appealing, but also vulnerable, groups deserve my support”

Fiona Mactaggart MP, Blue Sky Patron

Recently, our Friends came together in support of TEAM BLUE SKY and their crazy endeavour.
