The International Office of the Dutch Probation Service has developed several new products to support Dutch prisoners abroad. The main objectives were to stimulate independence and self-confidence of prisoners, to limit the damage, caused by the detention and to keep the home front involved. The first feedback we received was very positive. Prisoners find it practical and very useful in (re)gaining control on their lives. Volunteers are enthusiastic because they can use it during their prison visits. Most of these products are distributed to Dutch prisoners all over the world. The leaflet below will tell you more about the care activities the International Office (Bureau Buitenland) is now deploying.
