About Prisoners Aid

The Prisoners Aid and Rehabilitation Society of Canterbury provides a free service on both sides of the prison wire. This enables us to support people who are currently, or who have been in the criminal justice system, as well as to their whanau, with continuous care from first contact to release and beyond.

Who We Support

We believe everyone benefits when prisoners and their family are in continued contact throughout a prison sentence. Contact us if you're about to be sentenced or if you or a family member already is in the criminal justice system.                                                  

Where You'll Find Us

Our office and paid staff are based in Central Christchurch. All of our services are abailable in Christchurch with limited services available in the greater Canterbury region and the West Coast of the South Island.
