Event description

Description

FutureScot is delighted to invite you to attend Digital Prison? Positive Futures in association with Positive Prison? Positive Futures.

This event will analyse the benefits and challenges of improving access to digital technologies in prison. As society becomes increasingly reliant on digital technology it is important for policy makers and stakeholders in the prison sector to assess how prisons will adapt to an ever changing world.

We will look into how improving digital access in prisons provides the opportunity to make lasting effects on reducing reoffending rates by helping to maintain strong family relationships; building essential digital skills and creating positive social networks.

The conference will be a platform for those working within the prison and third sector, policy advisors, academics and government officials to discuss the many ways in which digital technology can improve the lives of those affected by imprisonment and the services working with them.

With contributions from those enaging with the prison sector as educators, employers, digital experts and as previous offenders this conference will explore the opportunities digital technology provides as well as key challenges policy makers face in digitalising the sector.

Does digital technology have the power to reduce recidivism, improve wellbeing in prisons and make prisoner management easier? Join us to debate and be inspired by the changes digital technology can make.
