Penelope Keith, the President of KeepOut, invited me to join her at Send Prison here in Surrey where she presented certificates to four prisoners who had completed a qualification in Peer Education. KeepOut’s mission is to divert young people from crime and support prisoner rehabilitation. Young people who are at risk of entering the criminal justice  system are invited to the prisons and meet these qualified prisoners who tell them about their experiences . As a result,


the young learn about the consequences of crime, the effect of their behaviour on others and the penalties they face. A very focussed and impact orientated charity. Congratulations to all the staff and volunteers of KeepOut and to the yesterday’s certificate recipients.
