James Mapstone | Co-founder & CEO | Alliance of Sport in Criminal Justice
Konrad Deckers Dowber | Managing Director | Advantage Mentoring CIC

The Alliance of Sport in Criminal Justice is a charity that leverages the power of physical activity and sport as tools to reduce violence, crime and reoffending. They are the Secretariat for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Sport and Physical Activity in the Criminal Justice System and work with government departments, including the Youth Justice Board, NHS England and the Ministry of Justice.
In this free seminar, James will discuss the work that Alliance undertake and introduce two organisations who are both effective at using physical activity and sport to increase positive outcomes for the children, young people and adults who are in, or at risk of entering the justice system.
Konrad will then talk about Advantage Mentoring CIC and its work with the charitable arms of professional football clubs and local NHS Trusts to provide weekly mental health and emotional wellbeing mentoring support for 14-21 years olds who are more likely to enter the justice system.
Jane will introduce Active Lancashire whose lived experience team provide innovative behaviour change programmes for people in recovery. This is mostly recovery from substance misuse but also including help for people with mental health issues, gambling addictions and experience of the justice system.
