Any form of communication from a prisoners point of
view is a good thing a letter an email a visit however a phone call gives them that chance to get support from their friends
and family there and then right away without having to wait for the letter to arrive or the email to be checked by prison
That is why here at Prison Phone we have made it our mission to keep both you and
your loved ones connected via the telephone even when you are not at home.
Did you know the
cost of a mobile phone call from the prison pay phone costs on average 37.5p per minute that's £3.75 for
just a ten minute call. With our service that same call will only charge the prisoner a maximum of just £1
( 10p per minute) and would cost the friend or family member receiving the call 70p meaning the prisoners spends within the
prison can last much longer and their family doesn't need to send in as much money for the prisoners pins phone credit
Its be proven in various studies that increased family contact whilst a prisoner
is in custody can dramatically reduce the chance of them re-offending upon release therefore hopefully putting an end to the
vicious cycle some prisoners find themselves in.
Our service providing cheaper phone calls
for prisoners, supports them in a number of ways. It can change the mood of a prisoner from having a really hard emotional
day to making things a bit more manageable, because for those ten minutes they can be right back at home with you laughing
and joking with the children whilst they are at the park or just helping to emotionally support the wife and family they
have left at home.
Prison should not be a place where the prisoner is cut off from the rest of
the world just because they have made a mistake and we are doing our bit by helping them to stay in touch with family with
cheaper and longer phone calls from prison.
