R2S Role Models Marcus Miller and Tony Henry helping out students at Cotham School in Bristol

“R2S offer something that the prisoners fully immerse themselves in, the prisoners are able to engage with role models who impart their knowledge on to the group.The prisoners are encouraged to be creative and innovative with entrepreneurial ideas that require the prisoners to think beyond their own limitations.I have watched session after session R2S captivate their audience and I think this is a true testimony to the work that R2S are doing with young men. – Jade Fraser, Equality & Diversity HMP Thameside

"I came into this event thinking that I wouldn’t gain much from it. However, I feel that it has reminded me of the good and unselfish ways of other people. It has also given me a reality check, looking into myself and starting to become someone I want to be instead of someone I thought i had to be. I think I will come away from here with a fresh mind-set and attitude towards my life and others." – Inmate at HMP Thameside

"It was definitely a constructive event and positive experience. The whole thing gave me a lot of insight into business related matters that I knew nothing about and also helped to inspire me and give more momentum with my own endeavours in a practical way which was one of the things that I wanted to achieve but wasn't expecting to happen in such a way. Would definitely attend another." – Koby Owusu Donkor age 21
