Publishing with a Purpose

The team is fully committed to social justice. We practice what we preach, with staff supporting a small local charity annually, through activities ranging from quiz nights to sponsored events supported by social media and online campaigns.

The charity we are supporting in 2018 is the Shannon Trust. The Shannon Trust inspires prisoners who can read to teach prisoners who can't. It aims to engage with every non-reading prisoner early in their sentence, to open up new avenues of opportunity, and give them hope for a new and different life. By providing learners with opportunities to develop life skills, it better equips them to live as contributing members of society.

On Saturday 13 October Policy Press and Bristol University Press staff will be walking 14 miles to raise money for Shannon Trust, our chosen charity for 2018.

To raise awareness (as well as money) we'll be walking from Horfield Prison in Bristol to Mr B's Emporium bookshop in Bath.

Donate! You'll be treated to updates leading up to the event and on the day...
