Twinning Project Pairs Football Clubs With Prisons

A new initiative will be launched on Wednesday which pairs professional football clubs with prisons in an attempt to prevent reoffending.

The Twinning Project will aim to tackle the high rate of reoffending by using football to better prepare prisoners for release, find employment and reduce reoffending.

The initiative has the backing of the government, FA, Premier League and EFL, as well as the PFA and LMA.
