User Voice is a charity led by ex-offenders working to improve rehabilitation through collaboration. Founded in 2008 by Mark Johnson MBE, a former service user, User Voice builds the structures that enable productive collaboration between service users and service providers. We are able to do this because our work is led and delivered by ex-offenders. This gives us the special ability to gain the trust of, access to, and insight from people within the criminal justice system. At User Voice we know that the criminal justice system needs to be improved. We are optimistic that change is possible, and we know that we have the experience and insight to contribute to making it better. Rehabilitation is possible, and people with convictions can turn their lives into an active force for good in society. We work to provide ways that enable unheard voices; to make a difference, to urge policy-makers and people with power who make decisions to listen.
