    Abstract

    The Matt Talbot Community Trust is an organisation in Ballyfermot, Dublin, which helps people who have had issues with substance abuse and/or had experience of prison. The organisation works to provide a supportive community for its participants and their families. Education is one of the organisation’s key roles in this regard. This is an exploratory case study which focuses on the views of Matt Talbot Community Trust participants. The study will explore their views in a social and political context. This will be done by examining critical education and feminist theory and the social and political context in which the organisation operates. The implications of the study will be oriented towards possible future action which might be beneficial to the participants and similar groups. As critical education principles and feminist methodology inform this study, it is written with the intent that it is accessible to non-academic readers.
