In early 2009 Mike Bolton, the
Governor of HM Prison
Gloucester supported Jemma
Jewkes, a prison officer with
experience of Restorative
Justice work, to find funding
for and run a RJ conferencing
project within the prison.
With funding secured from
the Gloucestershire Criminal
Justice Board, the project has
just completed the second
quarter of its pilot year with
increasingly positive results. (excerpt)
