This talk is based on our work with a charity that provides support to families visiting male prisoners. This has proved to be a contentious and emotive subject, with individual responses to hearing about this work revealing much about attitudes towards people who transgress: educate and rehabilitate, or punish? Scrap short sentences in favour of community service, or focus attention on the victims and their families – not the offenders? Come and join us to explore this further.
