Mission Statement

The Prison Advice and Care Trust (Pact) is a national charity which supports prisoners and their families to make a fresh start. 

Our Vision

Our vision is of a society in which justice is understood as a process of restoration and healing, in which prisons are used sparingly and as places of learning and rehabilitation, and in which the innate dignity and worth of every human being is valued.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support prisoners and their families to make a fresh start, and to minimise the harm that can be caused by imprisonment on people who have committed offences, on families and on communities.
