A presentation by Amy Walden, Probation Officer HMP Winchester
Religious prisoners are able to practice their religion whilst in custody, providing them with much needed emotional and moral support from chaplains, time out of their cells, and a chance to form a network of friends. But what if you are not religious?
Amy Walden is the inspiration behind a positive new pilot project offering equivalent support to non-religious prisoners. In this presentation she considers the inequalities faced by the non-religious in prison, and explains how the British Humanist Association and HM Prison Service are seeking to address them. Despite considerable initial opposition, the pilot is proving to be a great success and it is hoped it will be rolled out across the prison estate.
Join us to learn about this exciting new pilot project aiming to transform the lives of Britain’s non-religious prisoners
