Shannon Trust is a national charity supporting thousands of prisoners a year to transform their lives by unlocking the power of reading. We inspire and train prisoners who can read to teach prisoners who can’t.
Email a Prisoner allows the friends and family of people in prison to stay in touch via email.
People in prison are significantly more likely to die by suicide. We work with prison services to reduce suicide and self-harm in prisons.
We invite anyone serving a prison sentence to write to us to request books to support their studies or for leisure purposes.
Books Beyond Bars UK is a collective of volunteers who send books and other educational materials, free of charge, to incarcerated LGBTQIA+ people across the United Kingdom.
With Arkbound’s aim in mind - to help disadvantaged people by widening access to literature and improving diversity within the media industry - we have decided to lead on a writing project for prisoners and ex-offenders, which we hope could ultimately become a collection of stories with the title ‘Writing Within Walls’.
