FACT SHEETS – The following site was created by the Prisoner’s Legal Service (PLS) in 2010. The PLS is no longer running but there are still fact sheets available on its old web site that are useful for people entering or exiting the prison system. Over the next few months we will be updating the content and transferring the fact sheets over to this site. In the mean time you can access the information via the following link – just click “Information for Prisoners”.
