PLIAS Resettlement is stepping up to the mark to fill a gap with the development of a mentoring programme geared towards supporting the over representation of BME individuals who have been through the criminal justice or mental health systems.
PLIAS is offering a solution based liaison and diversion advocacy and support programme for Black and Ethnic individuals which test alternatives to custodial sentences, by delivering supported care in the community. The mentoring programme is the cornerstone of PLIAS Resettlement Court Liaison and Diversion Project covering the London Boroughs of Brent and Harrow.
Launching the project and findings from the one year pilot will be Lord Boateng and Lord Bradley, Cllr Patrick Vernon, Graham Durcan, David Truswell and key speakers from Central and local Government and the voluntary and community sector. The Chair of the event will be Clive Martin, Director of Clinks.
