Beyond the Gate is a magazine distributed to those in and leaving custody; a directory of places and organisations that exist to help those within the justice system. Backed-up by real-life stories from people who have turned their lives around, the publication seeks to prove that there is life Beyond the Gate.
Beyond the Gate is a magazine published by ex-offenders for people entering and leaving custody. The point of the magazine is to encapsulate information that people in those situations need, and to sign-post them in the right direction to get any help they need to break their offending cycles, ultimately reducing the rate of reoffending.
Jeremy Earley has worked in the publishing industry for 30 years; from marketing to media to advertising sales, there is no area he has not been involved with. After founding Focal Point Ltd in 1994, Jeremy secured an exclusive contract with the NEC in Birmingham to install 300 TV screens just a year after incorporation. At the time, this was the biggest installation project of its kind. In 1997, the company successfully floated for £1.4m on OFEX.
The founder member of CCN (Community Communication Network), Jeremy boasts a place in Hansard after being mentioned in the Houses of Parliament by Lord Tony Clark in 2004, an achievement recorded in the National Archives for ever! CCN was a TV channel for Community Safety Partnerships to visually promote positive news from the community, thereby reducing the “fear of crime”. This led to Jeremy becoming involved with the Home Office and in a career highlight, Jeremy got the Prime Minster of the time - Tony Blair - to launch the channel.
Jeremy progressed to Commercial Director of the Life Channel, a health-promoting tv channel available in doctor’s surgeries and schools. Using his influential network, Jeremy was once again able to persuade the Prime Minister to launch the channel.
