The Prisoners' Advice Service (PAS) is an independent registered charity. They do not accept Home Office or Prison Service funding as this may affect their independence.
What do they do?
PAS provides legal advice and information to prisoners in England and Wales regarding their rights, the application of the Prison Rules and conditions of imprisonment.
PAS takes up prisoners’ complaints about their treatment inside prison by providing free advice and assistance on an individual and confidential basis, taking legal action where appropriate.
PAS runs the Prisoners’ Legal Rights group, which produces a quarterly bulletin entitled ‘Prisoners’ Rights’. Membership of the group includes prisoners, solicitors, barristers, academics and non-governmental organisations.
They can explain to you what the Prison Rules mean and how they affect you, and advise you if they are being wrongly applied in your case.
