In a New Zealand first, a youth offender gets the opportunity to turn his life around by working towards his Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award - while still inside Christchurch Men's Prison. Our thanks to the Friedlander Foundation and the Joshua Foundation whose support ensures that the Award programme can be delivered to this offender and others '"inside the wire'', to give them a fighting chance of staying out of the prison system once they leave.
