Home / Local Award News / Visit to HMP Parc with the President of Malta

The President of Malta HE Marie- Louise Coleiro Preca  has recently visited  HMP Parc in Wales and has been given first-hand information on the various programmes that are run by the family intervention unit which Included the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award programme. She  said that “The programme conducted by HMP Parc Prison in Wales, is carried out in such a way that it takes into consideration the prisoner in the context of his family and his children, rather than taking into consideration the prisoner in isolation terms. My orientation visit to the prison is aimed at encouraging such a programme to be implemented in Malta. Meanwhile I urge NGOs working with prisoners in Malta to continue to strive in their mission to empower families and children of offenders to reach beyond their current situation and look to the future with hope and determination for a better life.”

Mr Kenneth De Martino who accompanied the President of Malta on her visit confirmed that the Board of administrators of the Award  in Malta are considering the possibility of managing a similar programme in Malta.
