The Forgiveness Project wins Longford Prize

The Forgiveness Project has won the 2014 Longford Prize, awarded to an outstanding individual or organisation working in the field of prison and social reform.

Founder and Churchill Fellow, Marina Cantacuzino, received the prize on stage at the 2014 Longford Lecture from Jon Snow, Nils Oberg and Mary Riddell.

In their citation, the judges wrote that the Forgiveness Project "is making a significant contribution to reducing reoffending as well as having a wider impact in creating a more positive commitment in our criminal justice system to restorative justice." 

During her Fellowship in 2013, Marina visited prisons known for their restorative justice programmes across the US and Canada.
