How it works

Email a Prisoner works and works well. However, we wouldn't be able to operate our service if it were not for the assistance and co-operation of the Prison Service and prison staff.

You can send messages to a prisoner via this website, it takes only a few minutes to sign up and, the message gets delivered to the prison in the next daily batch.

Our sophisticated systems allow you to write an email, press 'send' and sit back in the knowledge the email will be delivered safely, securely & ready for delivery to the prison of your choice. Your message is printed inside the prison and will be included in the daily mail delivery. In select establishments your message is sent directly to the kiosk, for your recipient to read. From all corners of the World you can now stay in contact with prisoners, all for 40p per message.

The Email a Prisoner service is constantly being improved and some of the establishments facilitate our new developments. Please click on locations for further information. 

We are also looking to increase the portfolio of services that we offer to prisoner friends and families to make coping with a loved one being away from home easier. If you have any comments or ideas for services that you would find useful please let us know.
