User Voice

User Voice was created by and is run by people who have been in prison and on probation. Lived experience means we engage empathetically instead of sympathetically. We exist to reduce offending by working with the most marginalised people in and around the criminal justice system to ensure that practitioners and policy makers hear their voices.

All front-line staff must have lived experience, for prison roles they must have served time in prison.

As an engagement team member, you’ll spend your days speaking to and engaging with people in prison or on probation. You’ll hear their insights and feedback about what works and what doesn’t. Together we’ll feed that back to the prison or CRC for real change.
