Loaded Loaves was vey proud to provide the cake, generously sponsored by Jennifer Berry for the New Bridge Foundation 60th Anniversary Garden Party in Brixton on 16th July.

Volunteers from New Bridge provide emotional support for prisoners who are isolated and lack the support of family or friends. The role of the New Bridge befriender becomes all the more crucial given the fact that research shows maintaining ties with family and friends is important for ensuring successful resettlement and that the risk of reoffending is higher for prisoners who do not receive visits.

Befrienders help to instil the confidence needed for making positive life changes; encourage prisoners to engage positively in prison regimes and provide a bridge between the prison and reintegration into the community.
