Our President

The President of Pact is His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster and President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales. 

"Pact is the major Catholic charity providing support for prisoners and their families, working in most prisons across England and Wales. This work is a direct expression of our discipleship and a very concrete expression of our desire to serve the Lord in those who are most vulnerable."

Our Vice President

The Vice President of Pact is Archbishop John Wilson of Southwark.  

"Having worked as a prison chaplain I know first-hand something of the realities of life in prison. I am pleased to support the mission of Pact as a Catholic charity which helps prisoners and their families to make a fresh start. Putting the Gospel into practice, Pact works to strengthen family life, enable people to make a contribution to society, and to protect our communities. This is vital work in helping to change lives for a better future for all."
