Welcome to Nepacs
Nepacs is a north east charity which has been supporting people affected by imprisonment for over 135 years.
We aim to support a positive future for prisoners and their families in the north east of England by providing practical and emotional support.
The impact of imprisonment can be devastating, which is why our staff and volunteers provide friendship and support throughout this difficult time –
from the courts in Teesside, Newcastle and Durham,
to helping families to maintain contact during the prison sentence through our prison visitors’ centres, family support workers, and child and youth projects,
and then, at the end of the journey, offering prisoners and their families support and guidance about release from prison and resettlement in the community.
