We aim to improve the quality of life for those who are marginalised by language and culture by increasing awareness of the prison system and their rights by enabling them to access and exercise these rights. We provide a wide range of services to BMER (Black, Minority Ethnic and Refugees) and foreign nationals in UK prisons, and our goal is to ensure that the client’s transition from prison back into the community is as smooth as possible. For those wanting to return to their countries of origin, we provide them with information and assistance they need to do this smoothly.
Our role is to facilitate our clients in re-building their lives and reducing the cycles of re-offending.
