Circles South East
Emily began her career by volunteering at the charity Circles South East working with sexual offenders. Such persons were newly on parole having been imprisoned for committing sexual offences against minors. This challenging work entailed supporting clients to develop their self-esteem and social skills, ultimately helping them to reduce their social isolation and integrate back into society. Her works were endorsed by research findings that suggested reducing the social isolation of sexual offenders subsequently reduced their risk of reoffending. Emily was thus responsible for prioritising, safeguarding and promoting public safety, whilst also fostering the personal development and wellbeing of her clients in order that they could safely and fully reintegrate back into society.
