star this property answer text <p>The Prison Act 1952 enshrines in law the statutory duties of a prison chaplain.

Chaplaincy plays a critical and unique role in the work of prisons and life of prisoners. It provides not only faith advice but pastoral care in support of HM Prison and Probation Service’s commitments to decency, safety and rehabilitation.</p><p>A breakdown of prisoner population by religion is provided in the quarterly Offender Management statistics publication on GOV.UK.
