“A new centre which offers support and life skills to sex offenders who have been released from prison has opened in Nottingham.
The Corbett Centre for Prisoner Reintegration, which launched today, Monday, will help around 100 former prisoners and is described as the first of its kind in the UK.
Its aim is to reduce reoffending rates by helping ex-inmates reintegrate into society.
But the move has been criticised by victims of sexual abuse, with one calling it ‘a slap in the face’ when many survivors are struggling to access support services.
The project – at an unidentified city centre location – is being run by the Safer Living Foundation (SLF), a charity formed by HMP Whatton and the School of Social Sciences at Nottingham Trent University which offers support to people with sexual convictions.
Professor Belinda Winder, head of NTU’s Sexual Offences, Crime and Misconduct Research Unit, and co-founder of SLF, said: “I can’t emphasise enough how much we empathise with people who have suffered sexual abuse. But that’s why we’re doing this; to reduce reoffending.
“This important initiative will support our existing research to understand and prevent sexual abuse. It will also go a step further in encouraging us to apply our findings so that we can have a real impact on improving the safety of the public and preventing sexual crime.”
A prime example of fear and ignorance in action.
The sex abuse survivors should be rejoicing over this, as it is a move which unquestionably caters to them…and presumably their desire, that whatever happened to themselves doesn’t happen to someone else…
…Is there anything short of lining up the accused and condemned, in a human sacrifice [aka slaughter] ceremony, that will satiate their lust for cruelty and revenge?
Let’s get real!…
…These types of programs exist, not for the extreme cases [who will likely remain in prison], but for the individuals where there is strong expectation they can be manipulated, and kept under the government’s thumb.
These types of cases are well known, to have extremely low recidivism rates. Putting them in a profession and stable lifestyle, is the best chance at keeping them crime free.
Forcing them out of the social survival structure, typically has the opposite effect.
The day is coming…and more rapidly, as they invent new reasons to label someone a “sex offender”, put them on a list, threaten, abuse and ostracize them…when this is all going to come to a head…
There is already a sizable army of human beings, on these lists…held under this abusive oppression…many of whom are still physically capable…some [children, teens and young adults] of whom have their most capable years in front of them…And many have been very unjustly treated…
…What happens, when this army organizes and starts defending itself?
