Yellow Ribbon Community Chaplaincy provides support for people on release from prison in Staffordshire, West Midlands, Shropshire and Worcester, through one to one mentoring, guidance and practical help. Yellow Ribbon works with people seeking change in their lives so that they do not return to prison.

We meet clients in prison, listen and build a relationship. We aim to be the difference that makes people want to change their way of thinking and ultimately their lives.

Established in 2013, Yellow Ribbon works with mainly short-sentenced prisoners, seeking to be the bridge between prison and the community. Believing forgiveness and reconciliation are key to welcoming people out of prison and back into society we befriend, challenge and change the behaviours that lead back to prison. By offering one to one mentoring, building a relationship and addressing individual issues, we believe that lives can be turned around and positive outcomes achieved.
