Prisons

Survivor Scotland funding supported the first 2 years of this project with male prisoners with complex trauma, at Addiewell Prison, West Lothian. Neil Howell RDMPthe therapist delivering this project, works closely with the Mental Health Team and the Consultant Psychiatrist there.  Moving Forth is currently funded by The Robertson Trust and Sodexo: Quality of Life Services to develop and continue this project. We aim to develop further to provide  group work to support prisoners to gain Mindfulness and relaxation skills.
