Basic Caring Communities (a Pact project)

AddressPact Head Office,

DescriptionBasic Caring Communities (BaCC) are groups of volunteers who offer daily support to an ex-prisoner, helping him or her to find their feet in the community in the first crucial months after release. The project started in Wandsworth Prison and is run by the Prison Advice and Care Trust (Pact), a national registered charity that supports people affected by imprisonment.

Each BaCC group is made up of four volunteers motivated by their Christian faith, and an ex-offender. The groups aim to:

- enable the ex-offender to avoid re-offending
- provide a sense of belonging to all involved
- provide mutual support and accountability to all those taking part
- encourage each person in the group to develop and grow in their lives
- be unique to the make up of each particular group
- be fun, supportive, challenging, encouraging, non-judgemental and potentially life-changing
