Lots of good practice – shown to our Italian visitors

European Mobility visit –  Italians  visit YSS


IMG_2954YSS recently  welcomed 7  Italians  as part of the  CONSORZIO OPEN umbrella, which is an National Network of providers working on the Offender Employment Pathways. They were very interested in the YSS Criminal Justice projects. Our guests were Laura Astarita, Maria Grazia d’Alessandro, Zeno Merlin, Ada Iadarola, Cristina Valentino, Luca Lambertini and Elena Cabrini.


IMG_2890Angela Parton, YSS Operations Director, told them  about the YSS approach to projects,(with the help of an interpreter)  and they heard more  about our work  from Sarah Bowcott and Mark Steadman, YSS Senior Keyworkers.  They took a lot of pictures of premises and projects  and even bought some of the  items made in the  workshop.

 After YSS  they went on to  visit  Croome Park, where they went to see a Community Payback project.




IMG_2950Manny Sandhu, Executive Director, Ubique Ltd, accompanied  them  on their  trips and said “I  also wanted to say thank you again for hosting us, they thoroughly enjoyed their visit to YSS and took a lot of good practice away. In fact, Zeno when back and within a week had those residing at his approved premises refurbishing and upcycling used wooden pallets! They had a great time with yourselves and I still get messages from them about their visit and how much they gained from it.”
