OUR 2023 LONGFORD PRIZE: we want to hear from you with nominations for those working in prison reform NOMINATE

Many Ways For You To Get Involved

If you want to support the Longford Trust in its work for prison reform, here are a few options you might like to consider. You can attend our annual lecture, hear how things could be done better, and then spread the word. Or you can volunteer as a mentor to our Longford Scholars. Or encourage your local school to become one of our school partners. Or you can also make a donation. Whichever you choose, it will increase our effectiveness in providing second chances.

Money Matters

We aim each year to raise around £350,000 to support our projects. We are a small, flexible, innovative organisation, using technology to keep our administration costs to a minimum so as to direct funds to where they are most needed, and can be most effective in delivering change.

Going The Extra Mile

“Confidence is a hard one. How accepting will people be if they find out you have been to prison? Do they need to know?” Hear from Longford Scholar Naomi and her mentor, Michelle, and others who work with the trust, about how they start afresh (right).

“The charity closest to my heart is the Longford Trust. You can read more about it elsewhere on this website and learn how its scholarship programme establishes role models for other young prisoners, wanting to avoid re-offending and to rehabilitate themselves through education.” Trustee Rachel Billington
