We’re continuing our efforts to raise awareness of the changes to the ROA, but this time we’ve been focusing on prisons. Firstly, we wrote a news piece for the March 2014 edition of Inside Time. A copy of the news piece is below. We’ve also recorded a piece for the Prison Radio Associations’ ‘Outside In’

We spoke with the journalist as she was developing this piece, although we’re not specifically referenced. This article highlights a number of issues that we’re taking forward
