We are grateful that Ali is now out of prison - but now comes a critical period of reentry and recovery. As an independent consultant, Ali doesn't have access to the kinds of benefits that is accessible to staff, who would have an organisation to help support them through recovery. As colleagues, we know how significant his work has been to our sector and how he is an invaluable resource and supporter of our work. As friends, we’d like to return the love and support Ali has given us over the years. We want to ensure that he will be able to recuperate and heal.
Please contribute what you can and help us spread the word to other colleagues that may contribute. We'd also like to keep this about colleagues he knows, rather than a less intimate response, so please send this via one on one, rather than one to many, like social media.
