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.
Revolving Doors Agency has appointed Nathan Dick as their new Head of Policy. Nathan joins from the Ministry of Justice where he has worked on recent probation reform. Previous roles include Advisor to Chief Inspector of Probation and the Head of Policy and Communications at Clinks. He will take up his role with Revolving Doors in January.
On Wednesday the Justice Secretary told the Justice Select Committee that “work on short-term sentences is not going to be put away in a box and forgotten" and confirmed his view that the "evidence points to the ineffectiveness" of these sentences. However, Mr Buckland went on to say his position was not to abolish short sentences, but rather to improve the range of choice that judges have of robust community options.
