Prior to working for St Giles Trust, I was employed for 4 years as a Prison Custody Officer at HMP Peterborough. For the first 2 years I worked on the Male Residence House blocks, before taking on the roles of Housing Officer for Male prisoners, and Male Link Coordinator.
I started working in housing for Peterborough City Council seven years ago and then for Cross Keys Homes when they transferred their stock over to a housing association. I left Cross Keys Homes to start working for St Giles Trust in August and have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and diversity of working with our clients and being involved at the start of the One Service in Peterborough.
I have a degree in Criminology and Sociology and later completed a masters in Forensic Criminology. I then worked in HMP Peterborough working one to one with the clients. I have been working for SOVA since November 2010 which I very much enjoy. I volunteered for SOVA while studying at university, and in November I began as a Support Officer, and now a Project Manager. I now work closely with the One Service, recruiting and training volunteers to then be matched with the teams case load.
Chris Mackett spent most of his career in the probation service, including over 20 years as a manager in Cambridgeshire. Whilst manager of the Community Service Team, he was involved in the national introduction of Enhanced Community Punishment. From 2005, Chris was temporary Assistant Chief Probation Officer and then Business Development Manager, where work included the development of the Dawn Project for women, co-commissioning alcohol services with NHS Cambridgeshire and inter-agency work, particularly in Peterborough. Chris was also involved in developmental work with the Romanian Ministry of Justice. After taking early retirement at the end of 2009, he worked on a number of short-term contracts, including working with the Safer Peterborough Partnership, back to probation as Assistant Chief and working for the Census Non Compliance Team.
I joined Ormiston to work as part of the ONE Service team, supporting the families of prisoners. Prior to this I worked for the YMCA for four years as a Senior Project Worker with 16-25 year olds that had various issues around re-offending, drugs and alcohol abuse. The main aim of my role was to support young people in resettlement and training programmes and to work closely with their families to help rebuild fragile relationships. My interest in this role stems from my previous experiences and I look forward to achieving more positive outcomes with the team.
I acquired a degree in Criminology from the University of Lincoln. I started volunteering with Sova as a mentor in 2010, supporting clients on a one to one basis in custody and in the community. I then progressed to a Sova Support Officer for the One Service in early 2012 and I balance this with my role as Volunteer Coordinator for Job Deal East. It is both challenging and exciting being involved with a project as innovative as the One Service.
During my degree in Offender Management I undertook an internship with the One Service. Since completing my degree I volunteered with SOVA as a mentor where I supported clients of the One Service in both the prison and the community. In January of this year I became a Trainer/Assessor and Volunteer Coordinator, delivering QCF Information, Advice and Guidance in the prison and community and coordinating the St Giles Trust volunteers.
I worked as a Fraud Office with the Department of Employment working with homeless and personal issue clients. I ran my own letting agency and invested in my own rental properties and still have investment properties. I am Landlord Liaison Caseworker with Sova-One Service, responsible for finding access routes for accommodation provision for ex-offenders.
