Help us to build a just, humane and effective penal system

The Prison Reform Trust works hard to ensure a just, humane and effective penal system - one which reserves prison for the most serious offenders, and treats prisoners and their families with the humanity and respect they deserve. We do this by gathering and disseminating clear and accurate information about the prison system, and promoting practical and constructive solutions to entrenched problems.

The Prison Reform Trust neither seeks nor receives funding from central government. As a result,we are entirely dependent on voluntary donations to support our work. You can help us to continue to lead rational debate on crime and punishment by making a donation to us by a cheque addressed to "PRISON REFORM TRUST" or via our JustGiving page. We value every contribution, of any size.

If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider using Gift Aid to increase the size of your donation—at no cost to you. Click here to find out more about Gift Aid.

If you would like to give regularly to the Prison Reform Trust, do consider becoming a Friend of PRT. Membership of the Friends scheme secures you invitations to PRT events and entitles you to free copies of our regular publications. You can find out more about becoming a Friend here.
