London Adviser acknowledged by Butler Trust for exceptional work in Feltham YOI
Michele Glassup, a National Careers Service Adviser working at YOI Feltham in London has been recognised for the outstanding dedication and passion she brings to her work by the Butler Trust.
The Butler Trust recognises, celebrates, develops and shares good practice by people working in prisons, probation, and community and youth justice, across the UK.
Michele was nominated by the Resettlement Department, Learning & Skills, and the Gym at Feltham YOI, for the extraordinary effort Michele put into making sure release on temporary licence (ROTL) placements are secured in the local community. She has invested her own time in securing placements, taking the young adults to appointments, interviews and resettlement visits ensuring available opportunities are optimised.
Working above and beyond to help the prisoners she supports, Michele is a well-respected and active member of the Feltham community working hard to ensure the young men receive the best opportunities to break the cycle of reoffending upon release.
Paulette Howard, Lead for National Careers Service In-Custody London said:
“This is wonderful, well done to Michele! I’m so pleased that the outstanding work Michele does in Feltham has been recognised, as she regularly goes over and beyond the contract to support the prison, which has enabled a number of young men to progress to meaningful education, training and employment outcomes. We really do appreciate the work Michele does, and are delighted her work is rightly recognised by the renowned and eminent Butler Trust.”
