Email a Prisoner Service (EMAP) - At the time (2006) this brand new service was introduced into HMP Guys Marsh as an alternative tool to help maintain family ties which sadly often breakdown once a family member is imprisoned. Our service now covers 96% of UK prisons and to date documentation continually states communication is a vital asset in the fight to reduce re-offending because prisoners are 6 times less likely to re-offend if healthy family ties can be maintained.

Email a Detainee (EMAD)
Introduced in 2008 the Email a Detainee service is again proving a vital communication life line for FNP's (Foreign National Prisoners) and their families. This service has truly opened the lines of communication for this group as our service is not subject or restricted to geographical boundaries or time zones. With the rise of the FN population in prisons this and additional services are the way to ensure these people are catered for.
