Bring Back Cafe Britannia!!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


Following the sudden announcement of the closure of Cafe Britannia, I felt we needed to try and prevent this from happening.  Unfortunately the cafe still closed.  I hope that the current and ex prisoners who were part of the scheme can see how much support they had and how much we wanted it to continue. As such, I am hopeful that someone will see, from the thousands of signatories here, that this needs to be picked up and started again.

Cafe Britannia was an amazing scheme run from HMP Norwich which caused the numbers of reoffending rates for prisoners to dramatically decline, giving them hope and a positive focus to leave prison with. To close with no sound justification from The Ministry of Justice was completely unfair. If the rumours were to be believed and there were financial problems, you fix it. You don't just close a hugely successful social enterprise.
