Second chances for ex-offenders through education

Longford Prize

Longford Prize Winner: Barbara Tudor

1st July 2003

Barbara Tudor was nominated by an ex-prison governor and seconded by a former Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police, and two victims of crimes who had benefitted from her work on restorative justice.  In commending Barbara Tudor’s achievements, the judges said that her work pointed a constructive way forward in tackling crime and represented the Probation Service at its very best.  

The Longford Prize judges also highly commended three further entries:

(1) Shirl Marshall, founder of Consequences which helps rehabilitate serious offenders in the community.  Much of its work is with sex offenders.  

(2) Inside Out Trust, a charity based in Hurstpierpoint in Sussex which gives prisoners worthwhile work - eg transcribing texts into braille or repairing wheelchairs - to reconnect them with the world outside.

(3) Jean Wynne, a Probation Officer at the Leeds Victim and Offender Unit, who through her work, research and publications has promoted the use of mediation and restorative justice in the criminal justice system.
