Safe Ground

Safe Ground challenges people and communities to do relationships differently. Through drama, dialogue and debate, we enhance empathy and encourage expression, developing self-awareness and promoting social justice. Safe Ground is a small team with national reach and influence. We are absolutely committed to reducing the stigma faced by the families of people in prison, to improving access to and diversity of educational activities in prisons and to creating alternatives to traditional punishment and exclusion, proven to be so ineffective. We work in partnership and collaboration with a broad range of organisations and are constantly evolving.
