Please write cards or letters to the following prisoners. Even if you just send a card with a brief message, receiving a message of support from the outside world can make a huge difference to the prisoner. Remember all correspondence is read by prison staff. Also don’t expect a reply as there is a limit to the number of letters each prisoner can write. Many prisons in the Uk are signed up to the 'Email a Prisoner' service, where you can email letters to all UK AR prisoners. For more details:

Cheques & Postal Orders

Please note that details of who the cheques/POs should be made payable to are listed below. The prisoner's name and number should be printed clearly on the back of the cheque/PO.

Please also include a Stamped Addressed Envelope (SAE) for the prisoner to acknowledge receipt, and indicate in your letter that you have done so.
