Hundreds of people are held in degrading and dehumanising conditions with fear and uncertainty about their feature. In 2021 we supported 1,249 prisoners and 1,921 family members through the challenges of overseas imprisonment. Isolation is always an issue for people in prison overseas, those returning to the UK and their family members. Maintaining communication is crucial for monitoring prison welfare, reducing isolation and providing hope in the darkest of times.

Our new film gives insight into the reality of this. 

Being offered a lifeline can change everything. 

Prisoners Abroad translates human rights law into practical life-saving actions by providing prisoners access to vitamins and essential food, emergency medical care, freepost envelopes to keep in touch with home and books and magazines to help sustain mental health.
