Explores the critical role of charities working with people in prison and their families. The stated duty of the Prison Service is to look after people with humanity, and help them lead law-abiding and useful lives in custody and after release. Yet, prison has a poor record for preventing reoffending - of the prisoners released in 1997, 58 per cent were reconvicted and 38 per cent were back inside on another prison sentence within two years. Drawing on an analysis of the needs of and issues faced by prisoners and their families, this report outlines a compelling role for charities. The report illustrates how charitable activities can reduce the likelihood of re-offending, enhance the effectiveness of the penal system, and improve the quality of life for people in custody and for their families. The report provides a wealth of information for donors and funders, whose support can help reduce the social and economic costs of crime.
