What we do

The Prison Reform Trust (PRT) is an independent UK charity working to create a just, humane and effective penal system.

We do this by inquiring into the workings of the system; informing prisoners, staff and the wider public; and by influencing Parliament, government and officials towards reform.

The Prison Reform Trust's main objectives are:

  1. reducing unnecessary imprisonment and promoting community solutions to crime
  2. improving treatment and conditions for prisoners and their families
  3. promoting equality and human rights in the justice system.
