Prisoners’ Penfriends

Prisoners’ Penfriends works closely with the Prison Service to enable people in prison to write safely to volunteer correspondents in the community. This reduces the isolation of those prisoners who otherwise have little or no support from the outside world – and assists in their rehabilitation back into society.

In February 2014 the Foundation granted £1,645 to extend the service nationally to sex offenders. The grant covers training and travel costs to ensure volunteer correspondents are fully trained and supported.
