Digital Journalism
Francis Osei-Appiah was convicted and sentenced to 9 years at the Old Bailey back in 2002 for his part in a notorious kidnapping and torture case. Since being released from prison, Francis has managed to re-build his life. Now he gives back to the community through visits to local schools and colleges, where he draws on his past to help and inspire young people towards more productive lives.

We invited Francis into our radio studio to talk more about his experiences and the valuable work that he is doing in supporting young people and their sense of awareness when it comes to crime.

If you are experiencing problems of a criminal nature, or simply want to find out more from a reliable and trustworthy source, check out the ‘Reform, Restore, Respect’ site for further info.
