I launched my campaign at an event on Friday 14th March at the Family Mosaic Brookside Centre in Southampton.
I spoke about my project and my Fixers film was shown to an audience of invited guests.
Around ten people attended, including representatives from the local probation service and youth offending team.
Fixer Josh Richards also came along to show his film about life in prison and the lasting consequences of having a criminal record.

We received the following feedback after the screening:
‘Stuart and Josh both spoke very well to a room of people they didn’t know, which was very brave. I hope they gain further confidence from this project.’
‘I really enjoyed the presentations. I think the films could help make a difference to young people. I was very impressed with Stuart and Josh for their acting and presentation skills.’
‘I thought the films were excellent. They could be developed into adverts for TV!’
‘Very good presentation. I think this will help others.’
‘Good presentations – hopefully the films will get the message across.’
