Dr Gillian Buck will discuss the latest evidence on how peer mentoring can help people to leave crime behind, connect them with services and employment opportunities, and facilitate consciousness raising and collective system-reform efforts.
This is the third in a new series giving you the chance to ask your own questions of leading academics talking about the latest research on an important criminal justice topic.
Dr Gillian Buck is a senior lecturer in Social Work at the University of Chester with ten years’ experience as a front-line practitioner in Youth Offending Services. She has summarised the evidence base on peer mentoring in the criminal justice system in a review for our Evidence library. Gill will be updating us on the latest evidence about peer mentoring in the criminal justice system and participants will get the chance to ask their own questions on peer mentors and the people they support.
