This seminar is part of our Prison and Probation Seminar Series

In this session we will be joined by Sarah Lewis from Penal Reform Solutions which delivers the Growth Project in Prisons. The Growth Project is the only cultural change project in prison, which embraces the importance of humanity, relationships and hope, to bring about positive change. This session, the next seminar in our Prison and Probation Research Series, aims to celebrate the work of the Growth Project and share personal and professional stories and learning from their work in prisons. It will outline the aims of the Growth Project and the theoretical foundations that underpin it. It will discuss the function of hope and hear from a selection of Growth Team members, as they share their stories of Growth during the Project and post release. This event, chaired by Dr Victoria Knight, will also include a Q&A session.
