This Hidden Voices feature of First Time Inside aims to offer those who have experienced or are currently experiencing life within the justice system in Scotland a platform to share their thoughts, stories and personal opinions on their journey to date. The style of writing or presenting those stories, verses or other pieces of work will be unique to each individual.
This feature is, in part, about creating a platform not only for sharing but also aspiration for those challenged by the justice system.
Sharing so called, Lived Experience, comes at an emotional cost to each person who contributes to the Hidden Voices feature and we intend to value their input regardless of style or confidence equally.
Moving forward we will develop a bespoke platform on HiddenVoices.co.uk but for now please respect, enjoy and absorb the messages attached to any material shared through this temporary media.
