PF’s mission is to show Christ’s love to prisoners by coming alongside them and supporting them. We seek through prayer and practical care to help, support and develop a Christian ministry to prisoners and their families.
We do this through our network of volunteers, and have over 3,000 volunteers. We are currently involved with almost all of the 120 prisons in England and Wales.
Our aim is to have a group in place to support every prison in England and Wales. PF volunteers connect with their local group, as this is where they get a feel for PF’s work and can be trained up to go into prison or volunteer in other programmes. As well as supporting prisons in prayer and running PF programmes, local groups are the primary connection with their local prison for PF.
Prayer is the basis for all that we do, and where it all started 40 years ago. All our activities are underpinned by prayer through our PF local groups, which usually meet monthly
