Care After Prison – Prison Bootcamp

About This Project

In October we partnered with Care After Prison, a peer led support system for former prisoners and their families. Due to the stigma surrounding ex-prisoners, CAP experience a lack of funding and understanding of the problems former offenders and their families face.

In February we launched the first pilot fitness programme. CAP encourages students to engage in good quality, economically friendly exercise.

CAP bootcamp impacts students who attend by offering a non-judgemental environment for people of all fitness levels. The link between positive mental health and exercise is well recognised – Prison Break is the ultimate study break.


Bootcamp classes run weekly on the DCU campus and cost 5 euro to attend.
