NEPACS

Nepacs is a north east charity which aims to promote a positive future for prisoners, offenders and their relatives by supporting family ties at every stage of the criminal justice system.
We are there to support people when a loved one is sent to custody in those anxious early days when visiting prison remains a mysterious and daunting prospect. Much of our work is delivered by volunteers, who bring energy, warmth and friendship, and offer reassurance in the most challenging of circumstances.
We are also concerned about the damaging impact of a prison sentence on the families of prisoners themselves and seek to limit this through informal support and signposting for help with finance, childcare and health issues. After all, the families haven't committed the crime, but they, especially the children, are greatly affected by the punishment.

• There are lots of ways to support Nepacs and prisoner's families in the North East by volunteering.
• Nepacs was started by volunteers more than 135 years ago and today volunteers are still at the very heart of everything we do. Our team of dedicated volunteers are helping to support prisoner's families and friends, and are also helping to promote the important role of family ties in assisting an offender's rehabilitation.
• There are a wide variety of opportunities available to suit a diverse range of skills and interests. We have volunteering opportunities available Monday to Sunday from 8am to 9pm
