Howard League for Penal Reform


Andrew Neilson


On Wednesday 13 December in Amersham we will be hearing from Andrew Neilson from the Howard League for Penal Reform about the history and work of their organisation.


Formed in 1866, the Howard League for Penal Reform is a national charity working for less crime, safer communities and fewer people in prison. Too much money is spent on a penal system which doesn’t work, doesn’t make our communities safer and fails to reduce offending. They work with parliament and the media, with criminal justice professionals, students and members of the public, influencing debate and forcing through meaningful change to create safer communities.


The League campaigns on a wide range of issues including short term prison sentences, real work in prison, children in prison and community sentences.



Wednesday 13 December 2017 8:00 pm.

Small Barn Hall, Amersham Community Centre, Chiltern Avenue, HP6 5AH.
