The anderson lectures 2016

 “Inspirational work by all involved!”

That was the feedback from our guests who attended the anderson lectures on Thursday 28th April.

We want to say a big thank you to all who braved the torrential rain and came along to the event. This year the theme was around the issues and challenges faced by women offenders and the possible solutions.  We were privileged to have the company and expertise of four fascinating speakers:

  • Jenny Earle, Programme Director – Prison Reform Trust
  • Hannah Morowa, Project Manager – Women in PrisonPOPS literature image
  • Kath Johnson, Women’s Service Link Worker – Farida Women’s Centre
  • Clare McGregor, Founder & Managing Director – Coaching Inside and Out

Most importantly we heard from a service user who shared her personal journey story and spoke about the support she received and continues to receive from POPS Farida Women’s Centre. Her testimony not only struck a chord with guests including the many professionals present in the audience representing agencies from across the Criminal Justice System and beyond, but also demonstrated the need for women specific services and the important work they deliver.

We say thank you to our speakers, Manchester Metropolitan University and to you for supporting this event.   The anderson lectures is now in its third year and continues to grow from strength to strength.

Pictures will shortly be available to view in our gallery.
