Write To UK Animal Rights Prisoners Via Email

Did you know that it is possible to write to many prisoners in the UK via the "emailaprisoner" service for just 25p per letter, cheaper, quicker and more convenient than conventional mail. Most UK prisons are either part of the scheme or are set to join in the near future.

You pay in advance and register with an email address and password. See below how it works, I've been using it for quite a while and it works really well, usually the prisoner gets the letter the same day or the next day, they can't reply via email, but this is being planned they say, as is the possibility to send pictures, see below.

It's a really great way to keep our comrades in touch with the outside world. For example, if you see some news online or in an email, you can just copy and paste it into an email and send it directly to the prisoner, with some news of your own perhaps. Or why not put a few stories and some news together, as you get 2,500 characters per email.

These prisoners can already receive emails:
Dan Amos (HMP Guys Marsh)
Natasha Avery (HMP Send)
Nicole Vosper (HMP Bronzefield)
Kerry Whitburn (HMP Lowdham Grange)
Sarah Whitehead (HMP Bronzefield)

These will be able to soon
Dan Wadham (HMP Camp Hill, will be available "soon")

Soon it should be possible to write to them all. On the website there's a list of prisons you can write to to urge them to introduce the scheme as well.

How Email a Prisoner works

Email a Prisoner works and works well. However, we wouldn't be able to operate our service if it were not for the assistance and co-operation of
the Prison Service and prison staff.

You can send messages to a prisoner via this website, it takes only a few minutes to sign up and, the message gets delivered to the prison rapidly.

Our sophisticated systems allow you to write an email, press 'send' and sit back in the knowledge the email will be delivered safely, securely and instantly to, the prison of your choice and included in the next mail delivery inside the prison.

From all corners of the World you can now stay in contact with prisoners, all for 25p per message

The Email a Prisoner service is constantly being improved and some of the developments we are currently investigating are: the ability to attach pictures to a message; the possibility of receiving messages back from prisoners; and many other improvements.

We are also looking to increase the portfolio of services that we offer to prisoner friends and families to make coping with a loved one being away from home easier. If you have any comments or ideas for services that you would find useful please let us know.
