Get involved in your area
Start today by praying regularly for prisoners and their families and for those who work in prisons.
Most volunteers want to get involved outside the prison – here are some ways to do this
- join a local prayer group
- give money to organisations working with prisoners, their families or with those coming out of prison
- write letters to prisoners
- provide Christmas presents for the children of prisoners

Some volunteers will find that getting involved on the outside of prison leads them to want be involved with prisoners who are serving their sentence inside prison. Understandably, there are many checks, including security checks, required before going into a prison to work with prisoners. The security process can take up to a year. Visit our resources page to find out more about organisations working inside prisons. There is a link to each organisation’s website to find out more.
