The Criminon programme teaches moral choices and equips prisoners with the life skills they need to stay on the straight and narrow, and remain free from future offending.
We help them to gain the integrity to lead honest and happy lives.
Many factors may have led to a prisoner finding himself or herself in the prison system. But in the vast majority of cases they have missed an education in basic morals. The core of the Criminon course fills the gap. [More]
Criminon delivers correspondence courses and tutoring to prisoners.
Our programme covers drug education, communication skills and – most importantly – personal integrity. Personal integrity is taught by reference to a non-religious and practical moral code, described in a book called ‘The Way To Happiness’. Prisoners doing our courses achieve genuine changes of heart. They make honest decisions to change their lives.
In many cases their life experiences would make you cry, no matter what they’ve done. But our programme enables them win back their self-respect and with that the confidence to live a future without crime.
Our organisation is run by a small full-time administrative staff. We are only limited by the costs of administering the courses and training volunteer tutors.
We are funded by individuals, businesses, and charitable trusts. We welcome any contributions to help with our work.
