We look to the days when everyone who serves a prison sentence will have
access to the support and opportunities needed to free themselves from
crime and build a brighter future in the community.
Community Chaplaincies are independent faith based voluntary organisations working towards this vision.
Community Chaplaincies work alongside prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families, offering mentoring and holistic support within prison, through the gates and out in the community.
The work harnesses the extensive resources that are available within the faith communities, most particularly volunteers who give their time to support those who are seeking to make a fresh start after leaving prison. Community Chaplaincies are multi-faith and work with offenders of all faiths and none. More information on 'Community Chaplaincy and Faith' can be downloaded here.
Community Chaplaincies seek to help build an embracing community in which ex-prisoners can make a new start … and contribute towards a healthier society for all.
The Community Chaplaincy is a growing network of organisations who are passionate about what they do.

There are many ways in which you could help your local Community Chaplaincy project through volunteering. Read an interview with one of our volunteers.
