A group which helps prisoners in Peterborough has been credited with turning around the life of a former convict.

Kieran Hyland, who was 20 when he was locked up at HMP Peterborough, has praised the work of senior officer Bridget Peeroo and the team at Outside Links which provides him with constant support and is helping him get back into work.

Kieran, who was sent to jail for sending abusive texts, gets help looking after himself and sorting out his many appointments. He said: “It was not until I met Bridget that I felt better in myself. I can always rely on her and Outside Links.

“This place has changed my life in a matter of weeks. Without this place there would be a lot more re-offending.”

Outside Links, which has an office in Wellington Street, recently celebrated its first anniversary.
