Prisoners Abroad - the leading charity in human rights and welfare support for British people detained overseas – is delighted to announce that Christopher Stacey will take over as its new Chief Executive when Pauline Crowe retires in May this year.

Christopher joins Prisoners Abroad with 15 years of experience within the voluntary sector. He is currently Director of Support and Development at Clinks, the national charity supporting the voluntary sector working with people in the criminal justice system. Prior to that he spent 12 years at Unlock, the national charity for people with criminal records. At Unlock he developed services, campaigns and policy initiatives that supported people with criminal records and achieved systemic change through reforms to legislation and policy. He is also a trustee of YMCA Lincolnshire.  

Christopher said:

Prisoners Abroad is a truly unique charity and I am excited to bring my passion for supporting people caught up in the criminal justice system; helping people through some of the most difficult times in their lives and enabling them to face the future with hope, dignity and opportunity. I look forward to working alongside the committed and talented team of staff, trustees and volunteers, and work with the charity’s supporters and key stakeholders, to champion the importance of the work that Prisoners Abroad does so that its crucial services are enhanced and strengthened.
