THE REVOLVING DOOR
"I hope to make people's journeys through services a better experience"
I became involved with Revolving Doors because through the research I hope to make people's journeys through services a better experience.
HAS BEEN IN 2017/18
- We supported 78 services to develop how they work with people to develop better services
- Together the services we have worked with have supported over 56,000 people in immediate crisis or trapped in the revolving door cycle
- Peer support is now being piloted in the national Liaison and Diversion service.
- The launch of our Short Sighted campaign has already changed the national debate on ineffective, disruptive short sentences.
Leading criminal justice and health charities are calling on the government to strengthen the law so that anyone being considered for a prison sentence must have a relevant up to date pre-sentence report before a court can imprison them. The call forms part of a new report entitled In Ten Years Time being launched at a major health and justice conference mark the 10th anniversary of Lord Bradley’s report on improving outcomes for people with mental ill-health and learning disabilities in the criminal justice system. The report, co-authored by Revolving Doors Agency and Centre for Mental Health, argues that far too many people are still being sent to prison despite significant vulnerabilities.
