About us

Home > About us

Prisoners’ Education Trust is the UK’s leading prison education charity. Since 1989 we have given more than 40,000 awards to people in prison – equipping them with skills and qualifications to build brighter futures.

Initially working in just HMP Wandsworth, we now fund courses in every prison in England and Wales. We have a team of over 20 staff members, supported by volunteers, trustees and patrons, as well as our alumni.

Our Funding

PET’s work is made possible through the generosity of our donors and supporters.

We are funded through donations from charitable trusts and foundations, and from individual givers. We also receive an annual grant from the Ministry of Justice. For more information see our Annual Accounts.
