Our panel of speakers discuss a major survey carried out by the Alcohol and Crime Commission, which was set up by Addaction. Consisting of leading figures from across the prison system, parliament and the treatment sector, the Commission surveyed prisoners across England and found that, while many will be able to manage their alcohol problems during their sentence, a lack of support upon being released can lead them straight back into criminal behaviour.

With John Podmore, a professor at the University of Durham and ex-governor of Belmarsh, Swaleside and Brixton prisons; Simon Antrobus, Chief Executive, Addaction: Kevin McGrath, High Sheriff of Greater London and Chair, McGrath Charitable Trust

Chair: Rowan Conway, Director of Connected Communities, RSA
