HELPING FAITH COMMUNITIES
WELCOME PEOPLE LEAVING PRISON
Our goal is to help faith communities become places where people who leave
prison find acceptance. We maintain a diverse directory of faith communities who
have declared a commitment to welcoming prison leavers.
We have 197 registered communities
across 6 major world faiths
Registering with The Welcome Directory allows faith communities to identify their
willingness to welcome and appropriately support prison leavers.
Our vision is to be able to help all prison leavers with faith to connect with supportive faith communities, wherever they are, whatever they believe.
Could you help us achieve this goal by supporting us today?
WELCOME DIRECTORY PRISONS AWARENESS SESSIONS
Interested in supporting prison leavers, but don't have prior experience? We offer a three-session Prisons Awareness Course to help your faith community to understand and appropriately support people leaving prison.
Leaving Prison in Faith - Hearing from Prison Leavers
Our patron, Dr Ruth Armstrong of the Cambridge Institute of Criminology produced this series of short films, sharing prison leavers' stories and experiences of leaving prison with faith.
We welcome you to explore the videos, and learn more from these individuals first hand testimonies.
