A very encouraging and positive piece highlighting the value of the sector in working towards creating and sustaining opportunities to improve offender behaviour and create opportunities for them when out of custody. Marie's role sounds great as one needs that conduit between the prison estate and the wider sector. It is, however, worth saying that the role of the VCS sector needs to be valued more, hence the need for more investment to widen this initiative across many other prison estates, especially here in London.
A really useful and informative blog for a really promising project across all three SW prisons involved.
Thank you Marie for highlighting the benefits of the Voluntary Sector Co-Ordinator role, my experience of the roles impact in both HMP Exeter and HMP Dartmoor are echoed in this blog.
