Tempus Novo

Calder Valley MP Craig Whittaker joined local employers, the police and an ex-offender to find out just what sort of impact Tempus Novo is having in the community. He heard from the employers on how the ex-offenders they have employed are hard working, loyal and grateful for the second chance.

The police told him about a scheme they operate where by engaging with some of the more prolific offenders, they are able to persuade some of them that there is a better life to be had away from crime, but without a job and an income it is highly likely they will return to crime.

Overall Craig seemed very impressed with how we are challenging the conventional methods of rehabilitation and stated he would spread the message in the corridors of power.
