Support for seniors

No one should feel alone. We offer support, friendship and advocacy services.

Support for prisoners

We visit prisoners, offering compassion to them and their families and encourage fairer treatment in prisons.

Support for Irish Travellers

Advocating for the human rights of Travellers and helping to improve their situation in the criminal justice system.

The Irish Chaplaincy is the only charity supporting Irish prisoners in England and Wales. As a result of the research we’ve introduced, many prisons have rethought their approach to Travellers. We believe in a fairer more just society.
