Quite funny the main gate house of the Prison was built in 1883 and this is now the reception area inside. The Victorians liked to put dates outside buildings and 1883 is in iron numbers. I often wonder of the people who built the prison and if the craftsmen who supervised the inmates were starting to watch Rover's or just starting to get an interest in football!
But if their mother didn't report it or press charges....
The point I was making was to challenge your assertion that we should help the homeless, not people in prison.
I've worked in secure services in the past and there are plenty of people who would benefit from this initiative.
Rehabilitation takes many forms and anything that can further this process should be welcomed.
And there are many there who should be there. We disagree a little on this. There are some in prison who maybe fell off the rails and made a mistake in life and they should be helped. But there are those in Horfield who have done terrible things and deserve being locked up. My pount about the homeless is thst these poor unfortunates have nothing and yet have not resorted to doing things that carry a custodial sentence. So I would give them help first. Only my opinion
