The Prison Advice and Care Trust (Pact) is a national charity that provides support to prisoners, people with convictions, and their families. We support people to make a fresh start, and minimise the harm that can be caused by imprisonment on people who have committed offences, on families and on communities.
What we do:
Every year we support thousands of prisoners and their families to make a fresh start. Click here to find out more about how we change lives.
We act as an advocate for the people we serve, through building the evidence base of outcomes from our work, and through constructive dialogue with commissioners and government officials.
