Edwina Grosvenor to Give PAS Annual Lecture

Reserve your seats now for PAS’ Annual Lecture, which, this year, will take as its topic, “The traumatic impact of women’s imprisonment on families”.

The talk will be given by renowned prison philanthropist Lady Edwina Grosvenor on 28th November. To reserve places, please e-mail list@prisonersadvice.org.uk.

Lady Edwina is the founder and Chair of One Small Thing, the organisation that works with prisoners and staff in both male and female prisons and in the community. One Small Thing was set up to encourage a better understanding of trauma within the prison system and how to deal most effectively with those who have experienced it.  She is a founding investor and Ambassador of the Clink Restaurant chain, which trains prisoners for work in the catering industry, and which now has four restaurants and one café in prisons around England and Wales.  In July 2018, Lady Edwina was awarded an honorary fellowship by Liverpool John Moores University for her outstanding contribution to public life.  She hosts the podcast Justice, where she discusses the environment of UK prisons.

PAS will also be launching our new set of four Family Law Guides at the event, published in association with Rights of Women and Lancaster University.  See the guides on our Work with Women page.

The event will take place at the London offices of Herbert Smith Freehills, to whom PAS is most grateful.
