Two recent items on Radio Four reminded me how little I know about prisons and ex-prisoners. Peter Woolf, a former prisoner, has written a book about his experiences. The government is adopting a scheme called Circles of Support which was started by Quakers in order to help convicted paedophiles to return to society.
After Googling "Circles of Support, I found this interesting web site on Restorative Justice and the ten minute video made by Peter Woolf and Will Riley is worth watching. http://www.restorativejustice.org.uk/?Welcome
