Dialogue For Diversity

Prisons in Northern Ireland

Dialogue For Diversity works with prisoners both before and after release.

Pre-Release

Some of the Dialogue For Dialogue Diversity group work in the Chaplaincy Team in Maghaberry Prison. This involves

  • One-to-one meetings with prisoners when they first arrive, often a traumatic time for them;
  • Building a personal relationship of support and encouragement with as many as possible;
  • Offering the Spiritual Exercises in Daily Life
  • Mediating when difficulties run into difficulties
  • Raising issues with Governors and the Department of Justice
  • Building relationships with staff.

The Group is also involved with Community Support, which is a project of Dialogue For Diversity. For more on this, click here
