Default Shrewsbury prison art course gives inmates job hopes

Prisoners in a Shropshire jail are hoping an art project will give them the skills and confidence to find work when they are released.

Fresh Start New Beginning is a charity set up by the Shrewsbury and Telford Community Chaplaincy which has been running at Shrewsbury prison for the past six years.
Governor Gerry Hendry is one of the trustees. He said they were trying to do something different from the "carrot and stick" approach used in the past.
"You can't legislate to change the way that people think," he said.
"They have to want to change. They have to want to do something different and it was really finding a vehicle with which we could do this."

That sounds a great project and something that really could make a difference, I hope they get plenty of support at the auctions and charity shop.

The charity I work for has ex-offenders as volunteers and this is something I will be mentioning to my manager. It would be great if we could advertise the art work
