COME TO AN EVENING ON NEED FOR MENTORING EX-OFFENDERS
Jonathan Aitken and Paul Cowley are among the speakers at this event in London on 11th May, put together to communicate the vital need for mentors to befriend ex-offenders and help change, what is often, an inevitable downward spiral back into crime.
Caring For Ex Offenders would like to invite you to CFEO Mentoring: A Call to Action, an evening exploring the need for mentors for the 70,000 men and women who leave prison every year. The purpose of the evening is to recruit a significant number of mentors willing to help with the aftercare of individuals released from London’s prisons and Young Offender Institutes (YOIs).
Over a glass of wine, you will hear from Jonathan Aitken, Paul Cowley and others about their personal experiences of mentoring and how it can positively impact a person’s life. You will also hear from people who are currently being mentored and the difference this support is making to them.
There will also be the opportunity to meet and network with people involved with Caring for Ex-Offenders and other ministries. Whether you have an interest in becoming a mentor, are already mentoring someone, or are involved in prison ministry and are passionate about the need to support ex-offenders during their re-integration into society, this evening is for you.
The evening will begin at 7pm for 7.30pm and will finish by 9.30pm. Join us on Monday 11th May at St. Augustine’s, 117 Queen’s Gate, London, SW7 5LP; please email Sophie Giles on firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your attendance.
Please bring with you anyone you know who you think might be interested in becoming a CFEO mentor.
