Awards for prisoner re-integration
Prison Reform Trust has announced the launch of the Robin Corbett Award for Prisoner Re-integration, which celebrates outstanding rehabilitative work with prisoners done by a charity or community group.
Dominique Airey, Chief Executive of Khulisa (Winner 2018), said:
“Can’t encourage you more to apply – this award has been game-changing for Khulisa. It’s added real profile and credibility to our work (helping us to unlock other new funding) alongside the unrestricted £5k prize money itself.”
Nominations are invited from prison governors, directors and senior management, with the emphasis on work that fosters personal responsibility and calls on people in prison, and ex-prisoners, to help others through mentoring and other similar work. Previously unsuccessful applicants are encouraged to apply again.
The closing date for nominations is 7th December
