A major gifts award to The Koestler Trust 04 Dec 2018
The Koestler Trust is a national organisation which plays a unique role in motivating offenders to take part and achieve in the arts, and in showcasing this art to the public. They encourage ex-offenders to change their lives through taking part in the arts, and challenge negative preconceptions of what ex-offenders are capable of. In recent years, they have significantly increased the range, reach and impact of their activities, ensuring that creativity remains present across the British criminal justice system. A ten year grant, index-linked to mitigate the impact of inflation, will underpin the national work of the organisation with prisoners and their families.
Funding towards Synergy's new writing programme to develop prisoners' and ex-offenders' playwriting skills to raise awareness about issues surrounding criminal justice.
