Self help

The prison will, in addition to running the usual education and behavioural courses, run a number if other initiatives to help prisoners and society in general. In particular they will run courses in Restorative Justice which are designed to make prisoners recognize the damage to themselves and others their behaviour has caused, and encourages the prisoner to make attempts to repairs that damage. During the course you may well be given the opportunity to meet victims of crime (but not those involved in your particular offence), and to discuss with then the consequences of your actions. These courses are not compulsory but interacting with them does add a positive to your P-NOMIS file.
