Quakers in North Wales are involved in a number of areas connected with prison work:
We have a joint North Wales AM and Chester & Wirral AM prison group coordinating this work and also preparing for the opening of Berwyn Prison in Wrexham in 2017.
If you would like to help with this work, please complete the volunteer form.
HM Prison Berwyn is a 2,100 capacity prison Category C men's prison which is being built in Wrexham County Borough. It is due to open in 2017 and will be located at the Wrexham Industrial Estate on the outskirts of Wrexham.
We have prepared a leaflet about our preparations which is available here.

Quakers have produced a document called 'Why Prison?' - A Framework to encourage discussion about the purposes, effectiveness and experience of imprisonment as a response to criminal actions.
