Gender Harm & Suicides in Prison
8th March 2017 – 3:30pm – 6:00pm
Woods-Scawen Room, Warwick Arts Centre
‘Our prisons are in crisis with insufficient funding and staff, and prisoner safety is at risk. This event brings together academics, policymakers, practitioners and stakeholders, to consider ways of reducing the risks of harm and suicide for women in prison, and improving the wellbeing of prisoners. Following on from the launch of our research report on work of Prisoners’ Penfriends (‘Imagining more than just a Prisoner’) this event focuses on the wellbeing of women in prison, a group identified as having the potential to benefit from the penfriend scheme’
The event will start with light refreshments at 3:30pm followed by short presentations from the speakers with questions and discussion, and a wine reception at 6:00pm.
