What does it do?
The charity developed and runs National Prison Radio, the world’s first national radio station for prisoners, aiming to provide practical advice, support and inspirational content to prisoners. Presenters work with the charity’s production staff in two prisons to make the programmes and the charity regularly visits prisons to record, with the aim of ensuring the station’s output is representative and provides as many prisoners as possible with the chance to appear on air.
