Terry Brown – Head of Programme Development
Sycamore Tree is a victim awareness programme that teaches the principles of restorative justice to prisoners, also recognising the impact of offending on families and the community
Sycamore Tree Peer Mentoring
Enabling prisoners to develop communication skills, responsibility through supporting other learners and an opportunity to give back to the prison community.
Our Letter Writing programme enables prisoners to feel valued and supported. Friendships develop where prisoners are able to experience the normality of receiving and writing letters preparing for their future life after release.
Angel Tree supports prisoners in their family relationships by providing a way for them to give Christmas presents to their children.
“I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am very close to my little girl and it has been very hard on us being parted and Angel Tree made it a bit easier. My little girl’s heart was broken that day and that lovely gift put it back together.”
“My daughter saw the present , her face just lit up. She ran around the hugging the parcel and shouting “It’s from daddy! Thank you so much, the look on my daughter’s face and the sheer joy in her I will never forget”
“A very big thank you for the support and generosity, also for the kindness in considering prisoners and their children. I think it is volunteers like Angel Tree that show prisoners that life is about giving, not taking. Thank you for all the work that you do.”
