Prison Reform Focus Areas
The Bromley Trust aims to promote prison reform within the UK, and has a particular emphasis on the reduction of reoffending and the rehabilitation of offenders. We welcome applications under the following areas:
1. Prison Education and Skills Training Focus Area
a. Employment focused education and skills work
- We will fund education and training work that focuses on employment, where there is evidence of clear links with employers and the realistic potential for offenders to secure employment upon release.
- We are interested in funding innovative work with offenders that contributes to the development of life skills to help reduce reoffending. We are particularly keen to support high quality arts interventions and new peer to peer approaches which enable prisoners to help others and contribute positively to society. Applicants should detail the evidence base for their work and demonstrate how they will ensure they make a meaningful difference in the lives of those they work with.
- We are interested in supporting work that helps to alleviate the unnecessary suffering of vulnerable groups in prison and seeks to bring about positive changes to the prison environment to ensure that their human rights are protected.
- We will fund a small amount of work to inform policy, practice and legislation that will impact on positive changes to the Prison System. Applicants should demonstrate that they have the expertise and ability to influence decision makers and bring about measurable change.
- Due to our limited resources, we are not able to fund drug rehabilitation or housing programmes or work outside of the UK.
