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 government sources.  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:

  •  cheque, made payable to 'Prison Reform Trust'
  •  bank transfer - account name: Prison Reform Trust. Acc no. 38661068 S/C 30-95-74 
  •  online through JustGiving or My Donate
  •  via text message by texting TPRT13 and the amount you'd like to donate to 70070 (eg. TPRT13 £3)

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. Find out more about Gift Aid.
