Distraction Packs

Having worked with older prisoners and ex-offenders for over ten years, we recognise the importance of keeping active, both physically and mentally.  Our Distraction Packs, "food for thought" were created with that in mind. 

They are produced on a monthly basis and are available at a cost of £100 per issue, or £1,000pa.  A PDF is sent electronically to each prison so that printing and distribution can be arranged.  They include activities such as word search, Sudoku, crossword puzzles, quizzes, a health section, poems, interesting reading and shared experiences within prison. 

Quote from a recipient:  "I want to write to thank your organisation for all your work to help improve older prisoners' lives.  Your "food for thought" booklets are welcomed, as it helps to keep our minds stimulated and pass time in an educated way".

A leaflet giving further information and a sample of our Decemer issue can be downloaded here.
