The Prisons Project aims to offer people with convictions an easier transition back into their community. We hope that by providing information about relevant issues, we will reduce reoffending and aid rehabilitation.
Since the pilot in 2010, the Prisons Project has grown steadily with students attending HMP Low Moss on a weekly basis to provide presentations as part of the Induction Course for new prisoners. These presentations focus primarily on the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and advice on how to re-enter employment.
Recently, the Prisons Project has been involved with the Thinking Minds Program at HMP Low Moss. This offers help and advice to offenders suffering from poor mental health in prison.
In the upcoming session, alongside weekly presentations, the Prisons Project aims to provide information to prisoners regarding any legal changes made to Rehabilitation , as it remains an ongoing topic in Parliament.
