The Butler Trust is an independent charity established in 1985 in memory of ‘RAB’ Butler (Lord Butler of Saffron Walden), a reforming Home Secretary, to promote and encourage prison reform and positive regimes in UK prisons.
Its annual Award Scheme and Development Programme, helps the Trust to develop effective care for offenders by identifying and promoting excellence and innovation by Prison and Probation Service and criminal justice social work staff, contractors and volunteers. It also helps in developing and disseminating best practice in the care and resettlement of offenders throughout the UK and providing professional and personal development opportunities for staff.
