Bordering on the Criminal

16th May 2019, 19:30-21:00

The UK's need for penal reform.

The Prison Reform Trust works for a just, humane and effective penal system, examining its workings, informing its players and influencing its rulers. It aims to reduce unnecessary imprisonment, improve prison conditions and promote equality and human rights.

We will hear from Paula Harriott, Head of Prisoner Engagement at the Trust, about why change is needed and how current campaigns are addressing the political issues and supporting prisoners and their families. Followed by questions and open discussion.

Part of the Headingley Festival of Ideas.

21 Co. is part of Sunshine & Smiles, the Leeds Down Syndrome Network.

Sunshine & Smiles provides a support network in Leeds for children and young people who have Down Syndrome and their families. Until we were founded by a small group of parents, Leeds did not have a support network to help children and families living with Down Syndrome. Sunshine & Smiles fulfils this important need and provides a vital role in the community.
