The Lammy Review was released today. Chaired by David Lammy MP, it was an investigation into the treatment of, and outcomes for, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) individuals in the Criminal Justice System.
Welcoming the Review recommendations, Natasha Porter, CEO of Unlocked Graduates said:
“This report, in setting out such an honest assessment of the challenge in front of us, will help guide any organisation seeking to change the prison service. We are pleased that Mr Lammy acknowledged the success of Unlocked Graduates’ first year of recruitment. In our pioneer cohort, 1 in 5 were from a BAME background. This is only a start however and, as this report argues so strongly, there are some big challenges ahead for all prison officers if we are to build a criminal justice system that everyone can trust.”
