Grayling unveils mentor plan

Grayling unveils mentor plan
Every newly-released prisoner in England and Wales is to be given their own mentor to help them get their lives back together, Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has announced.

In a speech to the Centre for Social Justice thinktank, Mr Grayling set out plans to accelerate the "rehabilitation revolution" of his predecessor, Ken Clarke.

The mentors, including former inmates, would help find housing and training opportunities, and would be supervised by private and voluntary sector groups, he stressed.

Speaking on Sky News this morning, the Justice Secretary said: "My whole goal in all of this is to end the situation where too many offenders walk out of the prison gate with £46 in their pockets, they don't know where to go, they don't know what to do, they get no support and then what happens they just go back to the same streets, the same people, the same offences as before and end up back in prison straight away."
