Through the Talking Justice programme, the Prison Reform Trust aims to inform public debate about prison and community sentencing and to support members of the public to get involved by volunteering or pressing for reforms.
The programme forms part of our outreach work, kindly funded by the Monument Trust, through which we are working in partnership with civic society organisations including the University of the Third Age (U3A), Soroptimists UK, the National Federation of Women’s Institutes (the WI) and the National Council of Women, as well as voluntary organisations within the criminal justice system such as Pact, Victim Support and the Magistrates’ Association.
On this page you will find a range of resources full of facts and figures about prisons and community sentences, films and firsthand accounts and details of opportunities to get involved in volunteering, attending events or effecting change.
We want to get the nation talking about criminal justice and to help people to get involved in making things better. Tell us what you think about the criminal justice system and about the resources offered on this page, and what is happening in your local community. Contact us by email or call Katy Swaine Williams on 020 7689 7738.
