APF TV is a unique platform providing original hard-hitting content, hosted by former MTV Asia presenter Katherine (Kat) Alano. We discuss current affairs, social trends and relevant issues taking place in the criminal justice system and our wider community, where crime, politics and media meet. Bringing together a wealth of knowledgeable, opinionated and intelligent individuals, who collectively will help raise awareness and understanding for one another.
AP Foundation Podcast is a live streaming news talk show hosted by different guest presenters each week, where politics and crime meet media. In our ‘Behind the Door’ programme, we read out and discuss letters sent in from inmates serving time in HMP establishments up and down the country, as well as interviewing high profile ex-offenders about life behind bars and what led them to crime in the first place. We speak to the relatives and loved ones of those who have been the victims of crime, as well as the family members of those still serving long sentences. We speak to ex-offenders who have recently been released from prison and explore their challenges and efforts as they try to adjust back into society.
We are not afraid to speak out against injustice and corruption within the system. Our aim is to be a force for good, empowering and supporting both individuals and organisations who are working to stop the violence and knife crime on our streets in the UK. A movement is emerging – and by providing a platform offering resources, learning programmes and employment opportunities for vulnerable youths or ex offenders then together – we can fight back against knife crimes and senseless killing of young people.
