Prisons Week 

Beginning in England and Wales in 1975, Prisoners' Week was an opportunity for the Christian community to encourage prayer for the needs of prisoners. In 1993, Prisoners' Week became a registered charity, broadening its focus to all those involved and affected by prison (including prisoners families, victims of crime, prison staff, those working in other parts of criminal justice and many volunteers). The week became known as Prisons Week. Prisons Week begins annually on the 2nd Sunday in October.
