Over the past year, we launched our new strategy, welcomed new staff members, and merged with Prisoners’ Penfriends to expand our work across the prison estate. It’s been an incredible year, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our staff, volunteers and funders.

For the month of March, we’re thrilled to announce our Match Funding Campaign, where every donation to the trust will be matched, DOUBLING the power of your support. This is made possible by a generous donor who will match your contribution, helping us provide our crucial service for people on long sentences.

How it works:

  • Your £10 donation becomes £20!
  • Your £25 donation becomes £50!
  • Your £50 donation becomes £100!

Regardless of size, every donation directly contributes to our mission and allows us to reach even more people on long sentences.  

We have just 4 weeks to reach our target, so please help us spread the word. Here are a few ways each donation can make a difference:

  • £5 could cover the cost of 4 penfriend letters, keeping people connected in prison
  • £10 could provide travel costs for visiting someone in prison
  • £25 could provide someone with the Hardman Directory
  • £100 could cover the cost of art materials to support wellbeing
  • £500 could buy a laptop to help someone start their own business

We know that not everyone is able to donate, but there are other ways you could support us:

  • Share our campaign with your family and friends on your social media pages – most of our donations come from people connected to the charity
  • Follow us on facebook, X, or LinkedIn
  • Share your story of why you support our cause
  • Tell someone about our work

We believe in a future where everyone can reach their full potential within and beyond prison. It is through your backing that we can create a positive change in the lives of those serving long sentences, their loved ones, and the wider community. Stay tuned to our social media platforms for regular updates.

If you have any questions or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact us at fundraising@hardmantrust.org.uk.  Together, we can make a difference, supporting people on long sentences to find hope and purpose back in the community.

Press here to donate.

Thanks again for your support.
