Cloth Cat - Jail Guitar Doors

Cloth Cat is currently working at HMP Leeds in Armley in conjunction with Billy Bragg’s Jail Guitar Doors charity. This provides opportunities for prisoners to learn new positive skills as a part of their rehabilitation process. We believe that the project is to be seen as a challenge to prisoners and not a gift. We are working with prisoners who are serving shorter sentences, but once they are released, we want them to have developed personally in a way which means they are less likely to re-offend. With this in mind, we want to be able to continue the process of rehabilitation once they do leave the prison, before they fall back in to criminal activity.
