Nick Hurd visits St Giles Trust, Camberwell

St Giles Trust

Nick Hurd visits the St Giles Trust in Camberwell to learn firsthand about the practical ways they help break the cycle of reoffending among ex-offenders.

He met the Charity’s Chief Executive Rob Owen, caseworkers, staff and service users.

Speaking afterwards, Nick said:
“This is exactly the kind of organisation we want to create more opportunities for, because what they do works.

“And it works in a very special way by engaging offenders and ex-offenders and people at risk of offending through peer mentors who have been there and understand the issues.”
