Community Engagement

HMP Altcourse is committed to having close involvement with statutory, community, voluntary and charitable organisations.


Links have been already established with social volunteers who assist with religious activities and agencies such as Samaritans and Alcoholics Anonymous.

Prisoners are encouraged and supported to participate in charity fund raising and acre is taken to ensure the relevant charity is comfortable with prisoner involvement.

We have forged links with North Wales, Merseyside and Cheshire Police, Housing Associations and local schools and set up a scheme were young people, who have been identified as causing disruption in their community are engaged in activities to promote pro-social behaviour and give them an insight into prison life .

We have worked with local residents to provide equipment, built by offenders from HMP Altcourse, to enhance their environment in which they live.

We are working with community agencies who engage with young offenders in offering them opportunities to gain traineeships, training and jobs post release.

We have welcomed college students into the prison, who are looking to take up a career in the Criminal Justice System so they can see for themselves what prison life is about. This offered the students an opportunity to speak to offenders about their experiences of prison life.

Charitable agencies we have worked with over the past twelve to eighteen months include The Princes Trust, Irish Community Care Merseyside and Cheshire Crimebeat, and we look forward to continuing this work, as well as expanding this to other charities.
