Bridges from prison: a communications toolkit

This toolkit builds on the communications principles set out in Bridges from Prison: making the case for jobs and relationships. You’ll find practical tips and tools for anyone communicating about people in and leaving prison.

Evidence shows job opportunities and supportive relationships, such as family, are two of the most significant things that will help people to lead a decent life after prison and not reoffend.

This toolkit draws from our latest research into criminal justice in the UK, which focuses on how to frame communications in order to make the case for creating these bridges from prison.

The principles in this toolkit can be applied to any form of communications, from reports to social media, speeches to funding applications.
