About Us

The project “Protecting and Safeguarding LGBTIQ People in European Prisons” (Prison Safe) is a two-year project co-funded by the European Union under the Citizens, Equality, Rights, and Values programme (Agreement number 101084824-Prison Safe-CERV-2022-EQUAL).

The Prison Safe project aims to provide current and useful training to correctional staff regarding the safe and respectful management of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer and questioning (LGBTIQ) offenders. Relying on a best practices approach, this training will enable correctional staff to make better informed decisions about the safety, security, treatment and care of LGBTIQ offenders by providing academic, cultural and legal perspectives of the issues that make this group unique.
