Hope is often a rare commodity in prison, but we all hope for something, and those hopes orient our lives and future actions. 

We wanted to hear the voices of men and women in prison – what do they hope for?

So we distributed Hope Cards through prison chaplaincies across England and Wales, asking that question. Hundreds of cards were sent back to the PF Support Team. They represent the diversity of the men and women who spend time in prison, as well as the many things they have in common with each other.

There were hopes that were poignant and philosophical. Some were laugh-out-loud funny. Some were angry or passionately seeking justice. Others were desperately sad, holding onto hope by a thin frayed thread.


Will you to welcome these voices of hope into your church?

We have created a special church pack that includes a selection of around 40 of the cards we received from men and women in prison, together with posters, questions for reflection, and ideas for how your church can engage with the cards while you have them.

This is an ideal way to raise awareness of prison ministry and the men and women we serve!
