Lee says: “For 18 months I’ve been sat in that prison with a stagnant mind. I need something to do and here it is…”

“There are the things that the courts never gets to hear, because the police say you are this, this is what you are. I’m a hard-working person and this is what I do, but all they heard was ‘this is what he is’ and ‘that’s what he is’ and ‘this is because we think this’. … More Lee says: “For 18 months I’ve been sat in that prison with a stagnant mind.

Ernie says: “I think a lot of people are a bit wary about picking up prisoners…”

“I think a lot of people are a bit wary about picking up prisoners, but that didn’t faze me at all. I’ve worked with people before who’ve been in prison. People have made mistakes and that’s life, isn’t it? We all make mistakes. People say to me “why are you driving prisoners?”, like it’s something … More Ernie says: “I think a lot of people are a bit wary about picking up prisoners…”

Benny says: “prisoners in prison just tell it how it is…”

“What’s been happening? I’m just doing the same really. I’m just learning the gardens with Mon. I work on my own. She’s teaching me the seasons, she’s trying to teach me a whole year’s cycle so that if I wanted to have a job doing it, I’d know how to do it from start to … More Benny says: “prisoners in prison just tell it how it is…”

Joe says: “this is more about rehabilitation and getting your head sorted, than kind of digging away at a roadside…”

Benny says: “I always say to them, look if you’ve got the choice, you know you don’t go”

I’ve met some very interesting people who volunteer to come and cook, and that’s been my highlight really so far, because I like people, I like to pick people’s brains and things, and I like to listen to people’s lives, and I’ve met some interesting guys and girls that are on community service here, doing … More Benny says: “I always say to them, look if you’ve got the choice, you know you don’t go”

Rachel says: “You need to give people the opportunity to improve their lives and to live”

I am a police officer, you get sworn in on Friday of the first week, so it’s all done and dusted, I’m working towards a diploma in policing, which is a two year overall thing and as part of that you have to do 80 hours in the community, so this week at LandWorks comes … More Rachel says: “You need to give people the opportunity to improve their lives and to live”

So Blaidh Nemorlith, Plymouth’s Poet Laureate did a poem about transformation man, which was really, really flattering yeah, it means a lot that anyone is inspired by my story, and for him to do that was really, really cool, really epic, so I thought it was only fitting really that we write the poem down, … More Brett says: “There’s always reasons behind everything…”
