Feedback from a group we worked with in Bullingdon Prison (Oxfordshire).  This was a workshop based programme.  Having the practical real world advice and support we gave will improve the chances of success.  For some this will prevent them from re offending – and that saves you and me money!

Thanks to Thames Valley CRC for support in making this programme possible.
