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.
Our new report based on a recent survey of our London forum members estimates that Londoners who are caught in the revolving door of crisis and crime were unable to access any legal support for as many as 37,500 legal problems since the introduction legal aid cuts.
Revolving Doors Agency launches a new paper showing the problems with short sentences. A poll we commissioned also shows that 70% of MPs back the Justice Secretary’s plans to curb short sentences of less than 6 months.
