Video: Breaking the pattern of offending

Pluss Positive People Video 19 July 2022
John from Pluss chatting to ex offender Vinnie

Pluss works with a variety of partners to deliver its support and services. One of these partners is Konnect Communities.

Based in Cornwall, one of the aims of Konnect is to offer support and guidance to people with convictions, as they prepare to leave prison and head back into society.

Vinnie (not his real name) has been in and out of trouble with the law since he was just 12 years old. Now, at 36, he’s just been released from prison, after serving four years of an eight year sentence for armed robbery.

Konnect began supporting Vinnie in the months leading up to his release, and the team has been there for him as he attempts to integrate back into society.

Watch as Vinnie tells his story and find out about some of the ways Konnect have helped him break the pattern.

And once you’ve watched the video, click on the link at the bottom of the page to listen to a podcast where Juliet and Simon from Konnect talk about the work the team does to offer support.
