The Home Secretary Sajid Javid has visited Tap Social with Oxford West and Abingdon Prospective Parliamentary Candidate James Fredrickson and Deputy Police & Crime Commissioner Matthew Barber.
Speaking afterwards James Fredrickson said “Tap Social Movement is an example of what our community is at its best. It brings together a great product and a will to change our world for the better.
Projects like this can make the difference between empowering rehabilitation and people remaining in the criminal justice system. Business with a social conscience deserves to be championed and I am proud to support them.”
Tess Taylor Co-Founder and Director at Tap Social Movement said “It was great to welcome the Home Secretary, the Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley and the local Conservative Parliamentary Candidate to Tap Social today. We discussed the proposed prison day-release reforms and the need for government backing for third sector organisations working to help reintegrate ex-offenders into the community.
It is great to see interest in the cause of offender employment and rehabilitation at such a high level of government. We look forward to working with James and national and local government on developing more concrete support for ex-offenders transitioning back into working life.”
James further said, “I look forward to working with them in the future and watching them grow from strength to strength”.
