Our Mission

A place without stigma or judgement, regardless of your loved ones' crimes. We are here to support you because you are a victim too.

Do you have a loved one in a Scottish Prison? Would you like to speak to people who are in a similar position? Loop Scotland is here to offer support to prisoners' loved ones. It can be difficult speaking to family and friends for a number of reasons at times. We can feel very alone. Loop is a place where we can speak to our peers, in confidence, about the complex issues we face. In this group we have a safe and understanding environment where you will be made very welcome. You do not have to be alone.
