Meeting the Need – 17th October Event

We were delighted to be able to hold an event on the 17th October at the House of Lords – to highlight the work of New Leaf mentoring project and also the OOTBox social enterprise. The event, which was attended by service users,  volunteers, strategic leads from within the criminal justice sector, as well as key ministers and dignitaries, highlighted the needs of individuals on their release from prison whilst they aim to resettle back into the community.

Terry Waite CBE was amongst the speakers and shared his own personal experiences of life in confinement and the difficulties faced on release. In addition, guests also learned more about OOTBox – a social enterprise initiative established by New Leaf Project Manager Caroline Stevens, which provides training and employment opportunities, to those with multiple or complex needs.
