If your relative is in prison abroad, you can call us on our Freephone number 0808 172 0098 or email [email protected]. Our friendly Prisoner and Family Support team are there to offer guidance and support.
Having a relative in prison overseas can often feel like you’re serving a sentence yourself. It can be a difficult subject to discuss with friends and family and can put a strain on the family’s finances and general well-being. On this page you can find out more about how we work with prisoners and learn about our family support services.
