|What we do||I am a Prison Officer who works predominantly with those suffering with addiction and who are detoxing from substances such as Heroin and Cocaine and Alcohol. Many of the people that i work with come into Prison with ver little to their name and leave the same way giving them no motivation to change or access support. I am creating "Welcome back to society Packs" including clothing, toiletries, tea and coffee as well as signposts to helpful ex-offender chairites, comapnies and potential employers. My aim is to create a package fully donated by the communities that the Offenders will be being released into so that they feel more engaged and welcomed, hopefully encourgaing change.|
