Robert's Journey

Taken from an article which featured in the NCJA Newsletter in Spring 2013

Robert, a 28 year old ex-offender with previous substance misuse issues, was sentenced to two years in prison in November 2011, having been remanded in custody on four previous occasions. He is now in paid employment, after having spent a period of time with the ‘Roots and Shoots’ initiative which is a charity that initiates and supports environmental and recycling projects.
