Twinning project

Twinning project

The Twinning Project is a partnership between Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) and professional football clubs with the objective of twinning every prison in England and Wales with a local professional football club.

The aim is to engage approximately 100 prisoners per year in each of the 114 prisons in England and Wales in football-based programmes to improve their mental and physical health, wellbeing and obtain a qualification which will help improve their life chances and gain employment on release.

Professional coaches and football club staff, supported by prison PE officers co-deliver accredited coaching and employability based qualifications to prisoners to better prepare them for life after their release.
