Ministry of Justice launches website to connect offenders with mentoring charities
"Jeremy Wright, the justice minister, says the hub will help to tackle high reoffending rates
A website to help offenders connect with mentors and mentoring charities has been launched by the Ministry of Justice today.
The website, justmentoring.org.uk, which will be run by the Mentoring and Befriending Association, will also help former criminals interested in acting as mentors to link up with organisations where they can volunteer knowledge and expertise, the MoJ said."
