‘Reformed offenders ‘missing link’ to slashing prisoner numbers, research suggests’ says ABC’s Josie Taylor

In case you missed it. Great story by ABC’s national reporter Josie Taylor, titled, ‘Reformed offenders ‘missing link’ to slashing prisoner numbers, research suggests”, brilliantly incorporating the views of former prisoners, the experts by experience, the vital valuable lived experience perspective required for critical prison reform; and my Churchill Fellowship research which recommendations include just that! Josie Taylor’s story was covered on ABC Radio News; AM Program; ABC Radio WA, ABC TV News 24, ABC TV News 7pm Melbourne and Online.

    Hi Claire,
    Saw you and Arthur on the ABC news last night. The piece came across well, just a pity they did not follow it up in the 7.30 Report as well. Good on you for getting airplay in prime time TV spot.
