    User Voice is working in Partnership with Catch22

    User Voice and Catch22 have formed an exciting partnership that builds on our respective strengths.  Our first project together is for Kent Probation.

    User Voice's strength is that it is run by ex-offenders, and has the experience and understanding to enable offenders who are subject to supervision to express their views and to positively impact on the work of criminal justice agencies and their partners.

    Joining forces with Catch22 will enable User Voice to draw on the experience and approach of a larger voluntary sector organisation that has demonstrated its commitment to service user engagement and with a track record of partnership working that has impact.

    Together we can support the criminal justice system to listen and act upon the views of its service users and help reduce re-offending.
