I had the pleasure of meeting the Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP , Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice at a meeting organised by Tracey Crouch MP at Gun Wharf today.

The Secretary of State was met by the Leader of the Council Rodney Chambers OBE and we had the opportunity of discussing issues around reducing reoffending in general and the Victor Project in particular.

The Victor Project is a small scale pilot pre-employment programme that assists ex-Services ex-offenders to become work ready and avoid repeat offending. Victor is a partnership between two charities;

Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI), Blue Sky and Medway Council with funding from Forces in Mind and the Rank Foundation. The project has been operating for nearly a year and has provided six placements to ex-Services ex-offenders undertaking grounds maintenance work at the Council’s HQ at Gun Wharf.
