Funding for Offenders

The Prisoner Funder Directory presents a collection of funders who are interested in individual support for offenders and ex-offenders. This could range from support to buy equipment and household goods to training and clothing for interviews. It is available here

The Hardman Trust seeks to:

  • provide a window of opportunity whereby a long-term prisoner's project proposal might be brought to a successful conclusion through the financial support provided as part of an award.
  • highlight special achievement by long-term prisoners showing that such prisoners can make good and that they do have something to offer to the community, principally through a celebratory award ceremony held twice a year in one of HM Prisons.
  • raise awareness within the prison service of the extent of outside charitable support available by sending annually to every prison in England and Wales a one-off mail-out of ‘The Prisoner Funder Directory’, produced by the Hardman Trust in association with the Prisoner Funder Forum.
