Pact – Prison Advice & Care Trust is an independent Catholic Prison Charity rooted in the fundamental belief that every human being has an innate dignity and value. We believe it is never too late to change or to make a fresh start. Our overarching aim is to support prisoners and their families to make a fresh start and to minimise the harm that can be caused by imprisonment to offenders, families, and communities.
Did you know that a woman under state pension age living alone is expected to live on only £73.10 per week, out of which she may have to pay some rent and council tax? The Smallwood Trust was founded in 1886 and our Patron is HM The Queen. Edith Smallwood, our founder, was an extraordinary woman, passionate about helping those less fortunate than herself. Edith raised the funds that still help hundreds of women today.
