Kate Middleton viajou para Gloucestershire, na Inglaterra, para uma visita à prisão feminina HMP Eastwood Park.
Vale destacar que esta é a segunda vez que Kate Middleton visita a prisão de Eastwood para afirmar a importância da reabilitação social das detidas.
This morning The Duchess of Cambridge made a private visit to HMP Eastwood Park, a women's prison in Gloucestershire, to learn more about what support is available to women prisoners and their families living with complex social issues. The Duchess met with staff from Eastwood Park who explained the complex and often diverse needs of the women they work with including mental health concerns, family breakdowns, and treatment for addiction. Her Royal Highness also met with a small number of women prisoners to hear their personal stories.
After meeting staff and inmates at HM Prison Eastwood Park, The Duchess visited The Nelson's Trust Women's Centre, an organisation which provides support to vulnerable women and which works closely with Eastwood Park to provide ongoing support to women and their families, on departure from prison. Today's engagements follow a visit to HMP Send last September, where The Duchess joined Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust (RAPt), an addiction charity working to help prisoners addicted to drugs and alcohol. This visit continues to build on similar themes, as The Duchess seeks to broaden her understanding of problems such as addiction, poor mental health, and family breakdown and what support can be offered to vulnerable families to help break the cycles which are so often at the heart of these issues.
