Sir David Latham: How community volunteering can prevent re-offending

While I was handling criminal cases as a barrister, judge and in the Court of Appeal, I was aware that the critical time for offenders is the period straight after they leave the system. People with a history of convictions must find an ‘anchor’ to make that change to a life without crime. And the longer it takes them to find this anchor or purpose, the more likely it is they will return to prison.

A confidence boost for Sophia

Sophia is in care and has been most of her life. Before meeting Step Together she struggled to fill her time and was very quiet in new situations. Volunteering was not something Sophia had ever thought someone like her could do. She didn’t know anyone who volunteered and she was uncertain about it.
