Welcome to the Concord Prison Trust website.

Established as a registered charity in August 2004, we originally began our work in 1999 as a not-for-profit consultancy providing basic counselling skills courses for inmates at HM Prisons. We are dedicated not only to prison education but also to providing a path to rehabilitation through self knowledge. Our courses teach inmates a skill which could, with further training, lead to a career on release and also insight and self-awareness, making them question the path their lives have taken.

From pilot courses at Holloway Prison in London, we now have a team of excellent trainers offering courses at prisons throughout the south of England as well as in community settings. In this site you can find out about our courses, the background to the organisation and how you can help this vital work to continue. If you want to help in any way please contact us. You can see the latest news in the development of our work here.
