A charity which last year supported almost 2,500 prisoners and their families can now help even more offenders to break the cycle of crime.
Lincolnshire Action Trust (LAT) has recruited five new staff to offer additional support through its range of rehabilitation programmes and mentoring schemes.
It also has a new website to improve access to information about the services available.
LAT chief executive Alison Goddard said: “We’re dedicated to supporting offenders and the families of offenders before, during and after serving their sentence. Our new members of staff will enable us to support people much more effectively.
“As well as providing helpful information about the prison service and what people can expect at different stages, the new website will allow families to access details and contact information for those services which we run specifically for them including our Oasis and Young Oasis programmes.”
These latest additions to the Lincolnshire Action Trust bring the total number of employees to 28.
