Welcome to The Oswin Project

The Oswin Project, a multidisciplinary group, came together in 2011 to improve ex-offenders chances of finding long-term employment on leaving prison.

The Reverend Fiona Sample

Founder of The Oswin Project.

The Reverend Fiona Sample worked as a welfare officer in the Red Cross before moving to Northumberland. She is a school Chaplain, teaches and assists in her home parish.

As Chaplain to the High Sheriff of Northumberland and then as High Sheriff, Fiona had the opportunity to visit prisons in the North East and talk to staff and prisoners. When asked what would stop reoffending, the reply was always ‘a job’ and so the idea of The Oswin Project was born to create second chances and put a wedge in the revolving door of re offending.
