Donate - Help us maintain and develop our services for families

Nepacs welcomes donations of any size to help build and continue our work with prisoners, their children, families and loved ones in the north east of England, and to help them on the road to a better life for themselves.

You are able to make an on-line donation, one of two ways.  You can either make a donation via PayPal or via our Virgin Money Giving page.  If you choose to donate via our Virgin Money Giving page you also have the option to make this a regular or single donation and you can also set up your own fundraising page if you are planning your own virtual fundraising events, like the 2.6 challenge for example.

Thank you for your support.  Your donations not only help us maintain our services during these difficult times but also enables us to develop new initiatives to reach families in the community.

Current campaigns 

Winter Prisoners Bag appeal 

Please help us with our Winter Bag Appeal for prisoners being released from our departure lounges at HMP Durham, Low Newton and Holme House.

We aim to give men and women being released from prison release or homeless packs (including essential items such as toiletries) and need your help to do this.

Please donate second hand/used (good condition) back packs, handbags or drawstring bags and unused/sealed toiletries.

The toiletries we need include: Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Shower gel, Sanitary products for women, Sponges/face cloths and Deodorant.

These bags make a huge difference to the men and women leaving prison with nothing or very little, and it is particularly hard at this time of year with the cold, wet weather. It also means that they don't have to walk away for the start of their new life with just a plastic carrier bag and can choose their own bag.

If you would like to drop off your donations to one of our prison visitors centres or to arrange collection please contact our through the gate teams:

HMP Low Newton (women) 
HMP Durham 
HMP Holme House 

Alternatively, you can contribute to our appeal by making a donation to our online fundraising campaign through Virgin Giving HERE

Remember Nepacs in your will

Some people choose to leave a donation to Nepacs in their will, for which we are extremely grateful.

A will donation will help us to continue to work with children and families of prisoners in the future.
