Since 1978 Prisoners Abroad has been caring for the welfare of British citizens imprisoned overseas and their families. We provide expert advice plus life-saving and humanitarian services to thousands affected by overseas imprisonment every year. We are non-judgemental and provide assistance regardless of the stage of sentencing or the verdict.
The About Us section contains information about our work and the issues that people in prison abroad may face. You can also view our latest statistics and these can be found in our Prisoner Numbers section.
All media enquiries or requests to re-use materials should be directed to the Media team on 020 7561 6874(office hours) or email [email protected].
Please note, we cannot discuss individual cases without the express consent of the individual or individuals concerned but we can offer expert advice on:
- The conditions of overseas prisons
- The welfare needs of people detained overseas
- The needs of families
- Rebuilding lives through our resettlement service
Prisoners Abroad’s media team is comprised of five staff members. They have extensive experience dealing with press queries and can provide comments and organise live telephone and TV interviews quickly.
