The Friends of Erlestoke Prison was established in 2011 to support offenders with the challenges of resettlement and rehabilitation. We fund projects which:

  • Help offenders face up to the impact of their crimes
  • Help offenders develop skills and behaviours which will help them to find employment
  • Bring fathers closer to their families, especially those with children
  • Improve prisoner health and well-being
  • Raise local awareness about the work of the prison
