About the Organisation

Progress To Change is a charity which owns and runs two Independent Approved Premises (IAP’s) both based in Leeds.  PtC has a history going back almost 100 years. Our purpose is to assist and rehabilitate the most vulnerable in society based on the standards of our foundation by the Anglican Diocese of Leeds.

Ripon House has 22 beds for women and Cardigan House has 26 beds for men. Both premises are able to accommodate transgender residents. Both operate alongside the Probation Service Approved Premises. The majority of AP residents are high risk of harm and are released on licence from prison under the supervision of a probation practitioner. All APs operate to a national agreement/rules and provide three inter related functions, public protection, rehabilitation and accommodation, with the usual stay being up to 3 months. APs deliver an enhanced regime, which focuses on purposeful activities linked to resettlement and based on an understanding of desistence research.
