What Do We Need?
by Bob Paterson
PF Scotland offer support for offenders, ex-offenders and their families.
Prison Fellowship Scotland provides specific Christian outreach programmes in working with offenders currently serving a sentence.
With a particular interest in Restorative Justice, the Sycamore Tree Programme (STP) is being developed to enable prisoners to understand the impact of crime on victims and to accept responsibility for their actions (as in the Biblical story of Zacchaeus Luke 19 v 1-10). This programme is having a considerable impact in changing lives and contributes to a reduction in re-offending.
