Who we are
Nepacs is a north east charity which has been supporting people affected by imprisonment for over 135 years.
We aim to support a positive future for prisoners and their families in the north east of England by providing practical and emotional support. The impact of imprisonment can be devastating, which is why our staff and volunteers provide friendship and support throughout this difficult time.
The support can start from the courts in Teesside, Newcastle and Durham, to helping families to maintain contact during the prison sentence through our prison visitors’ centres, family support workers, and child and youth projects.
Then, at the end of the journey, Nepacs offer prisoners and their families support and guidance about release from prison and resettlement in the community.
Nepacs welcomes donations of any size to help build and continue our work with prisoners, their friends and families, and to help them build a better life for themselves. Your gift will enable us to continue our important work, which really makes a big difference to the children, friends and families of prisoners.
Thank you for your support.
