Beyond the Barriers, powered by 2nd Chance Group was a full-day event exploring the role of sport in promoting the desistance of crime.
The event brought together senior stakeholders, practitioners and leaders within Government, Sport and the Criminal Justice System to discuss best practice and the power of sport to support people and communities involved with the Criminal Justice system. Beyond the Barriers, powered by 2nd Chance Group played host to the launch of a new initiative - the National Alliance of Sport for the Desistance of Crime bringing together a range of stakeholders, inside and outside of sport to discuss sport's role in addressing the desistance of crime
