Our brand new series of Life After Prison starts next week, but in the meantime, Zak has been going back through some of his favourite episodes from the vaults.  In this episode from series 1, Tassie joins Zak and Jules to talk about her journey through the Criminal Justice System, from entering as a YO and becoming homeless at a young age, Tassie reflects on the life that she fell into and how she got out of it. Since coming out, Tassie has set up her own business helping to support care leavers in custody and gained a university degree. She now works for HMPPS as Reducing Re-offending National Lived Experience Lead.  Useful organisations: The Rees Foundation – https://www.reesfoundation.org/ Care Leaver Covenant – https://mycovenant.org.uk/ Catch 22 – https://www.catch-22.org.uk/ Prison Reform Trust – https://prisonreformtrust.org.uk/ User Voice – https://www.uservoice.org/ Revolving Doors – https://revolving-doors.org.uk/ Epic – https://epicconsultants.co.uk/ Going Forward into Employment Scheme – https://gfie.blog.gov.uk/2022/07/04/a...
