Our hardship relief grants provide the funds needed to cover basic necessities for prisoners of conscience. Many of these people have had to flee their home, been forced from their job and may have to continue to try to support their family.
These emergency grants cover items such as food, living expenses, accommodation, furniture, travel and medicines in the UK and overseas.
In 2019/20, we gave 137 hardship relief grants.
