Change is Possible
Callum Hutchison was born and raised in a very challenging environment in Glasgow’s east end. His early life was one of trauma which resulted in low aspiration, exclusion, fear, addiction and crime. Both as a perpetrator and victim, Callum was no stranger to violence and prison was a regular destination for him.
