Welcome to Prisoners Abroad
Prisoners Abroad is a human rights and welfare charity providing humanitarian aid, expert advice and emotional support to 4,000 people a year affected by overseas imprisonment.
We assist British citizens during their incarceration, when they return to the UK and need access to resettlement services, and we also support their family and friends throughout the trauma.
Prisoners Abroad translate human rights law into practical life-saving actions by providing prisoners access to vitamins and essential food, emergency medical care, and books and magazines to help sustain mental health. We help family members affected by a loved one’s imprisonment by providing one to one support, hosting family support groups around the country and arranging overseas visits. Our resettlement service supports those who are deported back to the UK, we find them somewhere to stay, provide grants for food and travel, and help them take the vital steps to a new life.
2015-16 Annual Review
When Adrian was deported to the UK following a prison sentence in the US, he needed somewhere to turn to help rebuild his life. Your support enabled him to get back on his feet and gave him hope for the future. Today he works at Prisoners Abroad, helping others to resettle.
We are committed to fighting stigma, seeing the person not the sentence, and giving people a second chance.
