What it does
    Pact supports people affected by imprisonment to cope and to make a fresh start, including prisoners, ex-offenders, their children and families. Our work in England and Wales reduces reoffending. We work in prisons of all types, and in communities. We reduce the risk of suicide and self-harm, safeguard children and vulnerable adults, and maintain and strengthen family relationships.
