LBB aims to:

  • Promote communication in  a common language in a prison setting
  • Encourage more effective interactions between foreign national offenders and prison staff
  • Help to reduce unnecessary pressure and emotional stress on staff and offenders
  • Facilitate more effective rehabilitation of foreign national offenders
  • Provide skills to help improve integration into society and the work-force after release
  • Offer vocational certification to prison staff
  • Raise awareness amongst prison staff of communication needs
  • Engage prison staff in offenders’ education programmes 


The overall aim of LBB will be to develop a multi-lingual, cross-cultural learning programme that incorporates not only the education of offenders on prison-communication and cross-cultural awareness, but also the education and certification of prison staff.  LBB will develop methodologies to encourage inter-cultural exchange between offenders in prison, whilst promoting and assessing vocational communication skills amongst prison staff.
