Author, journalist and founder of Write To Freedom
Caspar Walsh

Caspar Walsh has been involved in the British prison system since he was a child; as a visitor to his father, an inmate and finally, a highly regarded and skilled workshop facilitator. He writes regularly for the BBC and The Guardian on a life in the criminal justice system.

In 2008 he founded the award winning charity Write to Freedom working with young men, supporting them in their ‘rite of passage’ into adulthood. His latest book, Tribe Warrior was written in collaboration with 100’s of serving prisoners and is a powerful exploration of dark, contemporary issues through the long lens of history. Caspar believes the answer to our current crisis in youth crime and addiction (and a global shortage in accountable, trustworthy leadership) can be healed through a unique mix nature connection, sharing personal stories and building resilient, accountable communities.
