The Pathways Centre is an outreach initiative of the CDETB’s Education Service to Prisons and is funded by the European Social Fund.

The aim of the Pathways Centre is to facilitate the re-integration of former prisoners.

Catherine Ann had been giving weekly creative workshops with a group from the Centre and in December 2019, the group enjoyed a Christmas performance and produced a broadsheet of their work.

Covid-19 restrictions saw the workshops move online and Catherine Ann is proactively working with the Centre which, along with its clients, has been disproportionately affected by pandemic-related closures.
