Unlocking opportunities, keeping us guarded
A recent MVRP event debated how we might enable more prison leavers and ex-offenders to access employment opportunities, whilst keeping our communities safe.
The one-day course run by Taye Training was attended by practitioners from all over the Liverpool City Region.
Its focus was primarily around those convicted of a sexual offence and a recent survey of this cohort showed that seven out of twelve felt their life in prison had more value than their existence outside. That number also stated they were almost entirely bereft of hope.
Though a desperately serious subject, guests were able to sample the ambience and grandeur of our Lime Street location!
