Over 10 years we have supported 52 men. 32 have been released and are either in their own accommodation or Hostels and 20 are still in prison. 14 are in HMP Leyhill (Glos) and the other 6 in Whatton (Notts) North Sea Camp (Boston Lincs) Winchester (Hants) and Frankland (Durham) doing various Courses and waiting to return to Leyhill at some stage. Our befriending means we visit each guy as regularly as we can to encourage them, also assisting them with corresponding with their Probation Officers and Solicitors. We attend Parole hearings when invited and take them out on their ROTL (Release on Temporary Licence Day) and home leaves. We send them gifts of £20 for Christmas and Birthdays and also £10 phone top ups so they can ring us from their wing phones when they need to.
