A Day in the Life of a Shine Mentor - April

Circle’s role within the Shine partnership is the involvement of the FABI Project supporting women pre and post release from prison and their families in the community. Linda has been known to the FABI Project, following self-referral through Shine’s Women’s Mentoring Service whilst Linda was serving a 19 month prison sentence in in HMP Edinburgh. I was allocated as Linda’s Shine Mentor to help build her self-esteem and confidence and provide both practical and emotional support to address Linda’s isolation within the community.

A Day in the Life of a Shine (temp) Prison Based Champion - March

My current role in Shine is very different from that of a PBC and so going in and speaking to the women in order to take referrals has been a new experience for me.

A Day in the Life of a Shine Mentor - Prison Based Champion - December

Monday Morning – A day in the life of a Prison Based Champion.

Another rainy day on arrival at the Prison, I check in through security and then I make my way to the Link Centre.

A cup of coffee later and after a chat with the Prison officers finding out what’s being going on over the weekend it’s time to open my PR2 and get on with some work.
