About Maria

<p>Maria has worked at St Giles Trust for many years leading service delivery in prisons. She developed the first flagship Peer Advice Project at HMP Wandsworth in 2001, training prisoners to NVQ Level 3 in Advice and Guidance and supporting them to provide resettlement advice to their peers in prison. Alongside winning multiple awards, it was successfully transferred to the community, resulting in many of the people we had trained in prison working or volunteering for St Giles Trust. She completed a MA in Prisoner Education at the Institute of Education, University of London and has also worked on several pan-European resettlement projects adapting the peer model to programmes working with offenders in Italy, Roma people in Hungary and disadvantaged families in Portugal.</p>
