Perrie Lectures 2012 - Prisons, where does the community come in.

In 2012 speakers were asked to consider;

What role should the local community play in the life of prisons?

What more can local people do to help in the rehabilitation and resettlement of offenders?

Should the local community take more responsibility for offenders in its midst?

What can the community offer prisoners that prison staff cannot?

Should the public know more about what goes on inside prisons, and should communities be more actively involved?

Chair for the day was Raphael Row - BBC Panorama reporter

Those invited to speak included:

Pastor Nims Obunge - Founder of the Peace Alliance in London

Javed Khan - Chief Executive of Victim Support

Dr Nancy Loucks - Director of Families Outside

Dr Peter Wright - Governor of HMP Nottingham
