Peninsula Initiative

Charity description

Peninsula Initiative logo
Peninsula Initiative Community Chaplaincy (PICC) helps people to make a new start after leaving prison. We support people returning from prison to localities within the South West peninsula; Cornwall, Devon and West Somerset, and we work closely with many partners to provide a comprehensive network of support. With the ongoing encouragement of PICC, people can grow to value their lives enough to face the challenges of starting a new way of life.

Just like Prison Chaplaincy, Community Chaplaincy works with people of all faiths or none. The relationship begins within the prison walls and carries on through the prison gate on release, effectively bridging the gap between prison life and the outside. The Peninsula Initiative team, a mixture of professionals and trained volunteer mentors, continues to offer support in facing the myriad of challenges of life on the out, including those of finding work and building new friendships. It links people who have offended with people who care, and assists them to make informed choices about the future as they seek to start afresh.
