Dr William Lockitt receives Winston Churchill Silver Medallion

On Wednesday 30 May 2012 Dr William Lockitt of G2G Communities CIC was awarded the Winston Churchill Silver Medallion for his research into the effective use of technology to train and educate offenders in secure learning environments.

Dr William Lockitt receives Winston Churchill Silver MedallionDr Lockitt visited Norway, Sweden and Germany to see first-hand how the innovative use of technology was improving the employment prospects of offenders upon release from prison and significantly reducing the reoffending rates.

The Silver Medallion was presented by Paralympic champion and Fellow of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, Tanni Grey Thompson on 30 May 2012 in Westminster, London.

William said ‘The Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship made it possible for me to see first-hand how technology could be used effectively in secure learning environments and I was able to talk directly to both inmates and key decision makers in each of the countries visited’. ‘The research report highlights some of the barriers and issues that have been overcome to ensure prisoners have access to technologies that will enable them to get employment within an increasing technological society and make an active contribution to the community upon release’.
