If you didn’t hear the news already, Switchback is delighted to announce that we won the Robin Corbett Award for Prisoner Re-Integration 2016.

Alice, along with two of our trustees, went along to the House of Lords for the All Party Parliamentary group meeting and to collect our award, which now has pride of place in the Switchback office!

This good news story was covered by the Daily Mirror. A reporter spent the morning in HMP Isis with our Head of Delivery, Richard, and spent the afternoon visiting the office and café, interviewing staff and Trainees. You can read the fantastic article HERE!

Winning the award has meant that we have had an incredible response on social media and Switchback is being celebrated by so many of our supporters and others in the Criminal Justice Sector.

A massive THANK YOU to The Prison Reform Trust and the Robin Corbett Award for recognising the value of the work that Switchback does and for helping more people to hear about the incredible journey that our Trainees decide to embark on.
