How we work with others

Responsibility for sponsorship of prison groups has been placed by Conference with intergroups and is exercised through the Intergroup Prison Liaison Officer. As a member of AA you are there by permission of the Governor and staff and it must be remembered that every Governor, although working within a national framework, has the right of decision in his or her own institution.

Familiarity with prisons in the local area and a thorough knowledge of the AA Service Handbook for Great Britain are vital before accepting the role of Prison Liaison Officer.
