User Voice - Only Offenders Can Stop Re-Offending

Prisons Minister Crispin Blunt MP and Mark Johnson to speak at conference

Prisons Minister Crispin Blunt MP and User Voice's Mark Johnson will be speaking at a conference in Durham on Thursday 19th May 2011.

The conference, organised by the charity Necpacs, will discuss how family ties can be reinforced and family needs met, during and after imprisonment of a family member.

Carole Payne, Head of Early Intervention and Partnerships at Durham County Council, who will also be speaking at the conference, said: "Children of prisoners are a particularly vulnerable group, and it is important that all agencies work together to support them properly."
