    Getting offenders effectively resettled is one of the most important things we need to do with our creaky justice system. Huge scope for reducing offending and making us all safer – and turning someone who has gone onto the wrong path into a contributing member of society. Challenging but very necessary work and let’s have more of it so there are fewer victims and our streets are safer.
