Prisoners Week Trust - Supporting its Work

The theme for Prisoners Week 2016 is 'Remember Me'. Each year a new theme is chosen and resources are developed. The Prisoners Week Trust (SC043431) was set up to support activities in Prisoners Week. Prisoners Week seeks to raise awareness by:

  • Distributing publicity through Churches each year.
  • Providing parish resources.
  • Developing a website – with information, a calendar of events, details of organisations that offer help and advice, reflections, worship resources and discussion ideas.
  • Supporting many events in partnership with prison Chaplains and others, in communities and in prisons.
  • Organising national events - an ecumenical launch Service and, usually, a panel discussion.
  • Producing multi-media resources.
  • Engaging with various media representatives.

A Planning Group meets on a regular basis each year to determine the theme and includes representatives from third sector organisations as well as the Churches and prison Chaplains.

Prisoners Week Trust is a new charity, registered in Scotland No: SC043431, which was formed to promote and enable Prisoners Week to develop.  We invite you, your Church or organisation to consider supporting this work. One way of supporting Prisoners Week Trust is through our online donation page. Thank you for your interest.
