We know that for people leaving prison, participation in employment and education strongly increases the likelihood of moving away from crime; yet, for many, these opportunities are financially inaccessible.

It was an honour to be involved in the judging panel for PET's enterprise awards and to support people in prison with the ambition to pursue specific goals to have the funding to do so. I hope that going forwards, we can increase the amount of funding available to ensure that more individuals in our prisons can reach their potential.
