Following our meeting on July 14th on gang culture and violence, we are following it up with a meeting with Only Connect at their premises to look at crime, offending and rehabilitation.
Laura Chinnery, the Policy & Research Fellow from Only Connect will give us an overview of the organisation and its approach to rehabilitation.
This will be followed by a short drama about the typical OC client - or 'member' as they are called - and his/her pathway through our programmes of support and change.
An old-time member and now employee - Andrew Brown - will lead the performance. Senior staff from our prison programme ('OC Inspire'), drop-in centre ('OC Central') and creative-arts project (OC Create) will contribute - providing insight into OC's multi-leveled approach to prisoners, ex-offenders and young people at risk
Only Connect is a crime prevention charity providing a positive community – including training, support and creative opportunities – for young people at risk and ex offenders. Their programmes deliver support at every point in the crime cycle in order to reduce offending. They see people they work with as assets, not liabilities, with a contribution to make to their families, communities and wider society.
