‘The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners

Luke 4:18

Partnering with Clean Sheet is a great way to engage in social action that is transforming the lives of people with convictions.

We would love to support your ministry to prisoners and ex-offenders, either inside a prison near you, or in your own community Job Club.

As a Clean Sheet Church Partner, your church will be fully supported with initial and ongoing training.

Clean Sheet is a Cinnamon Network Recognised Project and so you may be eligible for start-up funding. Find out more about Micro Grants HERE

Our Patron Bishop James, The Bishop for Prisons, said, ” Clean Sheet is a wonderful social action project enabling church volunteers to be instrumental in helping prisoners and ex-offenders to find jobs.”
