Who We Are

Care_After_PrisonCare After Prison (CAP) is a national peer led criminal justice charity supporting people affected by imprisonment, current and former offenders and their families.

It was set up by the vision of 3 people in 2011; a former offender, a prison chaplain and a prison visitor. The Carmelite Centre on Aungier Street, Dublin championed and supported CAP from the outset and we are very grateful for their continued support.

At CAP, we place a massive emphasis on responsibility and acceptance and we strongly believe in second chances.

We offer former offenders a non-judgmental safe environment where they can identify what they need to reach and sustain their goal of leading crime free lives.

Our family support service is a safe and confidential space where the practical and emotional aspects of having a loved one in prison can be shared.
