Raising Your Game project manager Adele Doherty and learning disability consultant Harley joined the discussion on how the Department of Health’s Offender Health programme should spend its £5 million budget.
The money will be used to divert people with a learning disability and mental health problems away from prison, and follows on from the ‘Breaking the Cycle’ green paper.
The meeting was chaired by health and social care organisation Turning Point. Harley spoke to the group about what it is like to be a young person with a learning disability who has offended, and urged the group to keep people like him in mind when making their decisions.
