What difference does National Prison Radio make to prisoners?

The vast majority of prisoners listen to National Prison Radio – 84% tune in by the latest count, with more than a third tuning in every single day.

National Prison Radio provides vital information and discussion in a uniquely-accessible format, helping prisoners understand the impact of crime on themselves, their families, victims, and society as a whole. It provides a platform for those prisoners who can act as a positive influence on their peers, encouraging engagement with interventions that can help to reduce reoffending.
