Fixers: Life for prisoners' families on the outside

A young man from the South has launched a 'Fixers' campaign to make prison inmates more aware of the impact of their actions on their families left to cope with life on the outside.

In this month's Fixers report for Meridian West we hear from prisoners' relatives on how inmates need to understand how their crimes have affected their loved ones.

New research shows that if prisoners are made more aware of the pain they cause loved ones, they are much less likely to re-offend. One man is taking steps to make this happen.
