What we do
- PAS pursues prisoners’ calls for help about their treatment in prison by providing advice and information and, where appropriate, taking legal action.
- In addition to our Advice Line, Letters Clinics and Outreach Clinics inside prisons, PAS produces a series of Self Help Toolkits – available through prison libraries – and another of Information Sheets, both of which can be downloaded from our website, or sent to prisoners in the mail. These have been designed to help prisoners understand some legal concepts and procedures on their own.
- PAS produces the quarterly Prisoners’ Legal Rights Bulletin, in order to share updates on key Prison Law cases with prisoners, human rights organisations and legal professionals. Subscription is free for serving prisoners.
- You can download information about us in the languages below. Also see Prisoners Who Are Foreign Nationals page here.
“PAS has been a very positive and uplifting experience. The speed and depth of knowledge they impart has helped me to become more aware of my rights and not to suffer abuse.”
