This year’s theme has emerged from the experience of COVID-19 – a reassurance to people affected by imprisonment that they are Not Alone. During the week we are highlighting the many different types of support and presence available to people.
The week kicks off with a
Virtual Launch Service at 10am on Sunday 15th November – accessed on the Prisoners Week Scotland Facebook page. Recordings of the service will also be played over prison TV channels, where available, meaning that people in prison, their families, external organisations and congregations will all be watching the Launch Service at the same time.
In addition to various activities around the prisons there will be 4 zoom forums on different aspects of support which we hope you will sign up for
Forum 1 Pastoral Care in Prisons Sunday 15th Nov @ 3pm
Forum 2 Support Inside Prisons Tuesday 17th Nov @ 3pm
Forum 3 Support Outside Prisons Wednesday 18th Nov @ 7pm
Forum 4 Support for Families Thursday 19th Nov @ 7pm
You can find out more about the Forums and a link to register in the attachment to this email or by going to http://www.prisonersweek.org.uk/home# where you can also find posters to download and other information about Prisoners Week 2020.
