Brixton Prison


This afternoon, Chuka visited Brixton Prison with Juliet Lyon, Director of the Prison Reform Trust to discuss some of the key issues facing the prison and to see first-hand the rehabilitation programs being provided.

Brixton Prison offers many resettlement initiatives, such as workshops and education activities, geared toward preparing those imprisoned for release and reducing reoffending – including the Clink restaurant. The Prison Reform Trust works toward creating a just penal system by collaborating with relevant agencies to push for, and implement reform. They emphasise transparency of the system and the process, as well as opportunities and resources available to those imprisoned and their families.
