What we do
- Every week our volunteers visit the general population of all 3 of Bermuda’s correctional facilities.
- Annual Back to School Program provides school uniforms supplies to the children of Bermuda’s inmates.
- Angel Tree Christmas gift giving program gifts are bought for the children in the name of their incarcerated parent. A party in prison allows fun time together.
- Fathers’ Day Gathering – Another way to build stronger family bonds which are the single best solution to recidivism via networking with the authorities.
- Reintegration Fairs held several times a year.
- Promote and educate authorities and public about Restorative Justice which seeks to repair the harm done by crime. Rather than giving key roles only to government and the offender it includes victims and other affected people. ‘Alternatives to incarceration’ is restorative justice thinking.
- Annual prayer time lifts the community, in particular the police, prison officers, judiciary and legislators in prayer. Police, prison officers, victims of crime as well as offenders take part giving testimonies and praying for one another.
- BookConnect. Inmates read a title and then write a paragraph giving their understanding and impression of the book. Our volunteers give feedback and encouragement.
PFI's Centre for Justice and Reconciliation promotes restorative justice initiatives that work to heal broken relationships, repair the damage done by crime and restore the offender to a meaningful role in society.
