Prison Matters is a small charity offering support to ex-offenders.
They run two drop-ins held each Tuesday and Friday from 2pm-4pm in the Independent Methodist Church, 82 Victoria Road West, Hebburn NE31 1LR.
Everyone is friendly and supportive, and we have a lot of fun.
Many of our members are lonely and the drop-in offers activities to help them to build their self-esteem, become more confident, make new friends and learn new skills (we are running cookery classes at present).
Prison Matters tries to help the members to re-integrate into their local communities and we can arrange opportunities to volunteer at the Key 2 Life foodbank and Happy at Home social get-togethers.
