    The Value of Lived Experience

    Come and hear powerful personal journeys from some of our incredible staff and volunteers who have lived experience of the justice system.

    Panel discussion will be chaired by John McCabe, CEO of NE Chamber of Commerce.  You can read a report recently published by the chamber –  Inclusive Employment for the North East which links in with our event nicely –   https://okt.to/IHBQmr

    The event is followed by a light lunch and an opportunity to network with Ingeus staff, prison and probation services; local authority; training providers; recruitment organisations; health and wellbeing practitioners; policy makers and other business leaders. An event not to be missed, but don’t just take our word for it, here’s some feedback from our previous events:

    “It felt authentic and real, and helped overcome my own misconceptions and dare I say it, judgements. In that sense, it had a profound impact on me.” Chris, Local Authority.

    “The COO, Adam Hart summed up the work they had done with three words: passion, bravery, and impact. Well done on such a positive event, and thanks to the networking, I look forward to meeting back up with some great people very soon.” Andrea, Local business leader.
