It's a Prison Life !

The Foundation welcomed the first of hopefully many presentations by HMP Thorn Cross Young Offenders Institute.
The highly successful Peer Mentoring Programme was delivered to 22 students and 5 staff from St Antony's Catholic College in Urmston.
Two inmates supervised by their guards gave a talk on the consequences of poor decision making and behaviour which in their case led to Prison.
They gave a very unglamorized account of prison life and how one poor life choice can have the most dramatic of consequences.
The audience were fascinated and sometimes shocked to see what can happen when a young person finds themself in the prison system.
The schoolchildren's feedback showed how much the talk will hopefully allow them to make the right choices in life.
The Foundation is planning to run more of these talks in the New Year for other interested schools.
