February 2018 Drop-in

Thursday, 8 February 2018 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

About Bent Bars Drop-in Sessions:

The Bent Bars Project runs regular drop-in sessions for current and prospective penpals and volunteers. The drop-in sessions offer a space to introduce new people to the project, provide support and discuss issues. 

Come and get ideas about writing to a prisoner for the first time. Find out about how to get matched with a prisoner who is looking for a penpal. Or if you already have a penpal, our drop-in sessions provide a space to ask questions and discuss any issues that come have come up when writing. 

You can also find out about getting more involved in the project in other ways - whether it's working on our next newsletter, getting involved in outreach, helping with fundraising, collecting resources or helping with the general day to day tasks of the organising collective.

The sessions are usually held on the 2nd Thursday of the month in Central London. Please email us for the location and to let us know you are coming.

We also hold special events four times a year, often invovling film screenings, guest speakers, reading groups and other educational events. To find out whether we are holding a drop-in or special event, please check our events calendar.

Most of our meetings are currently held in London, but if you'd like to host a meeting in your own area, get in touch and we may be able to help you set one up.

Accessibility:  Please note that the building where we host the drop-ins has two steps to get into the main entrance, but we do have a ramp for access. If you face access barriers, please let us know in advance so we can make any arrangements to support your visit.
