About the Project

The Prison Link In Reach Project supports individuals leaving Prison.  Jan 23 – Jan 24 is a Pilot in which any prisoner resettling in North Wales from HMP Berwyn (Men) and HMP Styal (Women) can utilise the support of the Prison In Reach Service when leaving the gates of the Prison.

The first year will concentrate on Opiates and those in Recovery from Opiates.  Furthermore, the Project will oversee a robust Community Connector Programme of Volunteers that will carry out the critical gateway work and support prison leavers back into the community.

Those who are most vulnerable will be supported by a community connector for a whole 72 hours upon release (9-5) and then fall back to ‘loose’ support.  The community connectors will not have anyone else to see in that 72 of dedicated and targeted support

Eligibility / Referral Process

Referrals from an agency or within the prison, and we will look at each case individually.

Prison leavers with opioid abuse, new or historic, who want help – it is voluntary to work with us.
