TMP Community Building Event
"Loss of liberty & the journey back to being a citizen"
Name: Pete White
Organisation: Positive Prison? Positive Futures
What you will learn:
Information sharing on the process of being imprisoned (in Scotland) and the journey back to the wider community. This will include discussion on stigma, discrimination, isolation, integration and hope.
- Understanding of the realities of being a prisoner
- Understanding of the barriers that can be encountered on release
- Developing an understanding of the potential of working in collaboration on the basis of a solidarity of aims (removing silo thinking in the third sector)
- The potential of an asset based approach inside and in the wider community
- Information for people with convictions
Why me? Why this subject?
I left prison early in 2006 having had a positive experience of being a prisoner. Since release I have worked almost exclusively in the third sector as part of my aim to work people who, for whatever reason, find themselves caught up in the Scottish criminal justice system to help them to recognise that they can make their own decisions to move on with their life away from offending.
