Working in prisons

There are over 120 prisons in England and Wales and since their creation, local communities have worked inside the prison walls to support those in custody. Today there are thousands of voluntary sector staff and volunteers playing a key role in supporting the reduction of reoffending, helping families and children impacted by imprisonment and working through the gate to resettle individuals back into the community.

Below are links to useful information about the prison system and the work and resources that Clinks have developed to assist the voluntary sector who work in them.
