Mark Woodruff, Social Development Grants Programme Manager at The Monument Trust (1999-2018)
“The Trustees made it their explicit aim to keep young people out of prison and, if they do err, to ensure they never go back. For the next 20 years and more, Monument stepped up our investment in scores of projects, programmes and research in action, to improve on what prisons can do positively and how to put things right after, and even better, to reanimate the older wisdom of prevention; and motivating people all the way through, with a higher vision of how their future could be.”
