From Prison To Transformation – The InHouse Records Story

Our global society is in an extremely challenging situation, desperate for growth without damaging our planet, desperate for compassion and justice without bias. Through my practize and case studies, I will be exploring the ever-increasing need for Service Design to be adopted across State, Private Sector and Charitable Sectors. I will be sharing the major findings of my work across homelessness and the criminal justice systems in the UK and USA.
