Support for seniors

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

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

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.
