STRETCH DIGITAL
STRETCH DIGITAL
After the success of the Stretch Story Box project and in direct response to an emerging need from the offending community we are luanching a new programme for the next 3 years with the aim of closing the 'digital divide' between prisoners and the rest of the community.
Digital story telling has been a real success and a really creative way to hear the true voice of the offending community. 
Nick Hardwick, HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, in the report Through the Gateway writes:

“We can’t go on with prisons in a pre-internet dark age: inefficient, wasteful and leaving prisoners woefully unprepared for the real world they will face on release. I have not met one prison professional who does not think drastic change is needed.”

ARTS IN THE INNER CITY - DRAMA AT THE CO-OPERATIVE ACADEMY
Over twenty young people at the Co-operative Academy have worked with Stretch between September 2012 and December 2012. They have built their confidence and group work skills through a range of arts activities. One of the highlights was going to the theatre to see a musical, some of the young people had never been to the theatre before.
