Friends of Peterborough Prison (FOPP)is an organisation working in partnership with HMP Peterborough to support the families and friends of prisoners.

Our office is located in the Visitors Centre at HMP Peterborough

Friends was founded in 2005 and grew from a desire of a group of people who recognised the need to provide a welcome and a friendly face to those who were visiting family or friends  in prison - maybe for the very first time.

Our philosophy is that, although the prisoners may have broken the law, the families have not and we work in a variety of ways to offer support to them.

FOPP offers direct and indirect support to the families and friends and the prisoners themselves in a number of ways.We offer opportunities to volunteer both outside of and within the prison
