We Are Straightline #13 - Staying Out Of Prison

This week's show is about staying out of prison.

Prison isn't a very nice place. But despite this, nearly half of adults released from prison are re-convicted and sent back within a year.

Why is this? How can someone break the cycle? And what's it like to feel 'institutionalised'?

Former prisoners Hilary and Brenda investigate.

We Are Straightline is your guide to life after prison. People inside prison can listen to the show on 12pm and 6pm Fridays, repeated again 2pm on Sundays, so tell them to get involved!
