What we've been up to this month:

Switchback is excited to have recently established an 'Experts by Experience' (EBE) board made up of Switchback ex-Trainees. The EBE board meets quarterly to discuss issues and challenges they are facing as ex-offenders, relating to both their time in prison, the process of moving through the gate and their experiences post-release.

The EBE board will directly contribute to both defining the topics and subjects we focus our policy and impact work around. This will also support us to identify examples of good practice, ensuring we continue to deliver the Switchback model in the best way. The first meeting was an enormous success with streams of ideas and subjects to cover!
