Peninsula Initiative Community Chaplaincy

Our remit is to provide holistic support for people in prison and then through the gate upon release, and during those first critical days, weeks and months (and beyond) back in the community, with the aim of helping them to overcome the barriers they face, enter into meaningful occupation and build a financially independent future in the community, rather than continuing in a cycle of re-offending.

We do this by spending time in getting alongside prisoners before they are released and trying to understand their hopes, fears and expectations for the future.  We help them map out a plan of how they are going to achieve what they want to ‘on the outside’, and then, support them in achieving this, through practical support, mentoring and advocacy on an on-going basis for as long as it is needed. We do not do all this on our own.

We work with many organisations, faith communities and volunteers to provide a relational network of support.
