Chris Barlas
Local Co-ordinator (Inverclyde)

Hello, my name is Chris; I am the Local Coordinator (Inverclyde) for Faith in Throughcare. I work directly with prison staff and other local agencies to support short term prisoners to make a successful return to the local community. I coordinate our fantastic team of volunteers to provide the best support to our participants.

I have Bachelor’s Degree in Adult Nursing, having graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2004. I nursed in medical and care of the elderly wards before moving on to work with young people throughout Inverclyde. Working for Inverclyde Peace Initiative, I delivered many workshop shops and one to one sessions in conflict resolution, anger management and assertiveness. I have a real passion for allowing people the time and space to make positive changes in their lives and love working with such a dedicated and hardworking group of people.

I enjoy spending time with my two amazing sons, keeping fit and trying to make people happy with the very bad jokes that I tell.
