Empower a
Neu Generation
to Break Free

Our Story

When an individual goes to prison, he or she is not the only one affected.

More often than not, the families and children suffer greatly as they are hit with the loss of breadwinner, sudden absence of a parental figure, strained ties as well as the social stigma towards offenders and their families.

In particular, the children are often susceptible to various factors such as low income, erratic parental behaviours, poor family relationships and poor academic performance.

In fact, studies have shown that not only they are more likely to achieve low educational attainment, there is a higher likelihood for them to commit crimes, a phenomenon known as
intergenerational offending.

WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAPPENING.

New Lives. New Futures.

Vision

A caring and inclusive society where lives are rebuilt to productive and self-reliant

Mission

As a charity, we provide holistic and empathetic support to reformed offenders, their children and families to prevent intergenerational offending

Our Key Milestones

1989

The industrial & Services Co-operative society limited (ISCOS) was established with the aim to support reintegration of ex-offenders.

2011

ISCOS started initiatives for children of ex-offenders, such as giving out of book grants.

2013

Various initiatives for children and  families were formed under the structured  framework of Fairy Godparent Programme.

2018

ISCOS set up a charity fund, ISCOS ReGen Fund (IRF), to focus on supporting the children and families of reformed offenders.

2022

The programme framework was reviewed and a Neu Empowerment Model was adopted. This in turn led to a new name, NeuGen, for the charity.

Neu Empowerment Model

In 2021, we conducted a comprehensive strategic review and changed our focus to be more proactive and impactful to help raise an empowered new generation of children — one of self-determination and unconstrained futures.
