Could you make friends with an offender?

A new scheme is looking for people who fancy making friends with Wiltshire's criminals.

The idea to become their mentors and help them with things like finding a job, getting on a college course or making sure they go to doctors appointments.

Opening Doors is starting off in Chipppenham, Trowbridge and Salisbury, but could move onto Swindon if successful.

Laura Sexton from the Wiltshire Probation Trust told Heart more about the scheme

Listen to Laura

The pairs’ outings will be supervised by the Wiltshire Probation Service.
