TIMES HIGHER: Fashion as a Transformative Force

I recently spoke to the Times Higher about our ‘Fashion Education in Prisons’ programme, which sees fashion students work with offenders on an innovative projects which helps boost skills and support rehabilitation. Part of this project is supported by the Sir John Cass Foundation and incredibly important part of our Better Lives campaign at the college. We were so grateful to receive the honour of the ‘Big Society Award’ for our work. Our project where a group of female prisoners from HMP Send in Surrey worked with the college to produce a fashion magazine, also won Widening Participation or Outreach Initiative of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards last year.
