PET works closely with the press to share positive stories about the power of education and the potential of people to change.

We can help with background, quotes and case studies, and can help arrange interviews with our members of staff as well as with people with lived experience of prison.

PET has been featured across national and local media, and also has a monthly column in the prison newspaper Inside Time.

For any media enquiries, please email or call 07824 189 661 on Monday to Thursday or 07968 493 098 on Friday and out of office hours.
