Prison Fellowship Switzerland proposes the following activities and programmes to support prisoners, ex-prisoners, victims and their families through Prison chaplaincies and Prison Administrations:

- Visitor Groups

- The Angel Tree Project® (Christmas presents for children of incarcerated parents)
- Library support (books, CDs, DVDs)
- Family support from abroad
- Concerts in prison
- Spiritual support

- Reintegration (for foreign prisoners sent back to their home countries)
The biggest network of Prison ministries around the world (PFI) is an asset in supporting the foreign prisoners and their families (70% of Swiss inmates are non-Swiss citizens).

A global network of associations in prisons

Each national association is independent and works, according to its context, for justice and transformation, reconciliation and rehabilitation of prisoners, ex-prisoners, their families and victims.

Our association has been active in German-speaking Switzerland since 1991 and since 2007 in western Switzerland.

The Association of Friends of the FIP
(AAFIP) created in 2005 is based in Vevey and supports projects of national associations worldwide. AAFIP works in close collaboration with Prison Fellowship Switzerland in Vevey.
