Our patrons say
Prisoners’ Penfriends makes it possible for volunteers to write safely to prisoners, giving friendship, hope – and a reminder of the outside world.
Prisoners' Penfriends receives no government funding and is heavily reliant upon the generosity of private individuals.
Prisoners’ Penfriends currently has enough volunteers and does not wish to recruit any more at this time.
We are grateful to the Garfield Weston foundation for its kind support.
