Prisoners at Norwich jail who have been training dogs have received further funding from a city club.
The Rescue-Rehab project was created and funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner Lorne Green to improve prisoners' mental health and help dogs find new homes.
The project was discussed at the Rotary Club of Norwich Centenary by the Norwich Best For Pets team, who manage Rescue-Rehab.
Rotary Club members heard about the positive impact upon prison mental health and wellbeing arising from participation in the Rescue-Rehab project.
The pilot for the project has been extended from three months to six months with further funding from the PCC with six dogs having been re-homed.
