During forty years, Prisons Week has been blessed with financial and ‘in kind’ support from many Christian organisations and individuals who share the aims of the week to pray for restored lives and transformed communities amongst those affected by imprisonment.
We employ no staff and the work required to facilitate Prisons Week is carried out by a small working group who offer their time in addition to full time roles within their charities and organisations. They see their involvement as a personal, faithful and fruitful response to a gospel imperative. Our costs are extremely modest and we have no central overheads.
Sponsorship by Christian organisations has successfully covered the cost of producing and distributing prayer leaflets, as well as more recently a website and short video to promote Prisons Week each year. The ‘in-kind’ support we receive is crucial, from design and marketing, to including prayer leaflets in publications or offering a free meeting venue for the working group and board of reference.
Encouraged by an increased level of national engagement and awareness during Prisons Week in the last few years, we are excited about the potential for building on this momentum to encourage prayer and practical response. We would welcome a conversation with anyone interested in our sponsorship package or in providing ‘in-kind’ support from their services and resources to further the work of Prisons Week.
