What is the prison reform society?

We aim to change prisons by changing the attitudes of society and its perception towards the reality of prison life.
We work with students, criminal justice professionals, the media, and members of the public - influencing debate and attempting to foster change in attitudes and policy.


What have we done?

Since our formation in October 2016, our members have developed and organised several successful events; the main being our Prison Christmas card campaign where we sent over 1200 Christmas cards to all the inmates of HMP Leeds – a campaign that we are running again this year.

How do you join?

It’s simple and free! Just click ‘join us’ to become an active member. We are asking for no membership fee because we really want you to get involved and help create a successful society.


What does being a member mean for you?

Being a member of this society is what YOU make of it. You can donate as much of your time as you would like; working flexibly around your studies. The society is open to all and always welcomes new ideas from everyone.

What are our hopes for the next year?

We have a range of innovative ideas including developing and building a mock prison cell, inviting ex-prisoners, representatives from organisations within the sector and prison guards as guest speakers and ways to develop educational programs in prisons.
Any ideas that you bring forward will be greatly appreciated and considered by the society.


Can I join if my course does not relate?

Yes. The society is not directly linked to any specific course or school. This is to ensure that all ways of thinking are accommodated for and a variety of opinions are considered from a wide range of backgrounds.
