Francesca Barker-Mills

Digital Specialist, Evolution Media MCR
From a flourishing professional career in digital and tech to serving a custodial sentence at Her Majesty's pleasure. Following on from a period of incarceration, I have furthered a passion for politics and social justice by championing and campaigning on behalf of women in the criminal justice system. Advocating for reformation of sentencing guidelines, directly challenging the passing of short sentences for women whose offending behaviour is better addressed in the community. I now work in collaboration with a variety of VCSE organisations supporting them directly through a medium of public speaking, digital workshops; alongside advising and mentoring women returning to society from prison on how to overcome the hurdles of criminal disclosure when re-entering the job market
