The Cascade Foundation help people with hidden disabilities such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and people who have suffered head injuries and has been working at HMP Doncaster, Marshgate.

Today they are holding a year anniversary event to mark the milestone occasion.

Jackie Hewitt-Main, founder and project director of The Cascade Foundation, is currently leading the work in Doncaster Prison.

The charity says that over the past nine years, Jackie has helped hundreds of prisoners across the country with learning difficulties to learn to read and write, gain qualifications and make a new start.

In her previous prison project, Jackie worked with over 400 prisoners and reduced the offending rate of her first project groups to 5.9 per cent compared to more than 70 per cent nationally.

Within the six years since their release three of these prisoners had served more than 40 sentences each, and yet none of them has re-offended since their release from her project.
