Former offender and retired judge work on rehabilitation charity

A former offender and drug addict who started a rehabilitation charity is being backed by the man who sent him to prison.

Tony Attwood spent 15 years in the criminal justice system, but was given a lifeline by Judge Peter Ross when he secured a place in a drug treatment programme.

Judge Ross is now supporting Mr Attwood’s new charity, Hope and Vision, to provide safe, secure and supported accommodation for former offenders in Berkshire.
