Prisons: Contact (David)

Excellent work is continuing in the Prison Service from AA SLIG. There are currently three meetings running at HMP Brixton weekly (two on D-Wing and one on C-Wing). Turn out for Inmates is good averaging 20-30 D-Wing and 4-8 C-Wing. The aim is to get the Inmates familiar with the AA 12-Step Programme and D-Wing prisoners practice Steps 1 to 5 as part of their RAPt Programme. Work is in progress to extend to Steps 6 to 12 and currently looking for volunteers to do Chairs in the prison.

Interested?......contact David at prisons.londonsouth@aamail.org
