HMP ISIS Kitchen Manager Joe came in to see us last week and catch up with some of the Trainees who used to work in the prison kitchen.
Shelu had been working in the prison kitchen for six months before he was released and started Switchback. Now working his shifts in the Crisis Café alongside completing action plans with his Switchback Mentor, Shelu was able to give Joe a full tour of the kitchen and talk him through all the delicious dishes he had made using the skills he had learnt whilst inside. It was a fantastic opportunity for Shelu to talk to Joe in a new environment showing him how far he had come and his commitment to living life differently.
A BIG thank you to Joe for all his support and effort with Switchback Trainees over the years.
