Criminology students at Ashton Sixth Form College welcomed Dr Wood to the lecture theatre.

The lecture focused on her main research interests: the health and wellbeing of prisoners and prison staff.

The lecture allowed them to focus on a specific element of the criminal justice system and gave them a unique look at the range of roles available to them after they complete their studies.

Dr Toni Wood is also a Principal Investigator on the Autism and the Criminal Justice System project and coordinator for the Criminal Justice Hub at the University, providing a unique perspective on crime in the UK.
