Spring appears to have finally sprung and with it so has the SIPS Spring Newsletter full of news of what we have been up to for the past few months.
Next week on 5th April we are excited to be running a seminar on ‘Citizenship and Engaging Marginalised Populations’ from 5.00-6.30pm with contributions from:
- Graham Beck, Governor of HMP Kirkham, the largest open prison in the UK
- Professor David Best, Professor of Criminology in the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice at SHU, and Associate Professor of Addiction Science at Monash University, Melbourne
- Dr Jennifer Sloan, Senior Lecturer in Criminology at SHU, and an expert in the reintegration of offenders
- Sergeant Steve Hodgkins – Lancashire Constabulary and Founder of Jobs, Friends & Houses CIC, who will speak on citizenship and the rehabilitation of vulnerable populations
All are welcome. If you would like to attend please register here.
We are also always looking for contributors to our blog so if you have some expertise in an area of social policy and can write something interesting and accessible in 500 words do get in touch as we’d be delighted to publish your writing.
