In an environment where prisoners feel isolated and are bombarded with paperwork, being able to just call an organisation and get advice can relieve a lot of stress.
Alex, supported by PET
Being on lockdown is difficult for everyone, but imagine being locked in a prison cell for 23 hours a day.
Right now the courses and support PET provides are more vital than ever – giving learners like Alex a focus for the long hours in their cells, and offering a sense of hope and purpose.
That’s why we need your help to launch our first ever freephone advice line – to support our current learners with their studies, and answer any questions that potential learners, prison staff, or family and friends may have.
An advice line is the quickest, most reliable way to offer our support – we know that the prison service is working hard to ensure that as many people as possible have access to a telephone during this crisis.
So we need your support to raise £10,500 to help launch and run the advice line for the next four months. A donation of any size will make a difference.
Please note: In the event that we raise more money than we need to establish and run the advice line, we will use any additional funds to provide courses and support to people in prison during the lockdown and after it has ended.
