Improving Literacy, Inspiring Hope
Half of all prisoners are functionally illiterate.* Diffusion works to transform the lives of prisoners, ex-offenders and other vulnerable people by providing exciting, easy-to-read books that help improve reading skills, inspire self-reflection, emphasize the importance of making good choices and encourage positive relationships.
These free books, which are used in groups whenever possible, help to promote two key factors for reducing reoffending - employability and positive personal relationships.**
You can help transform the life of a prisoner, ex-offender or vulnerable person today
