Perth Prison Visitors Support & Advice Centre

Perth Prison Visitors Support & Advice Centre

We provide a range of facilities and resources for prison visitors and we currently hold the Customer Service Excellence Award - a Government Standard that measures service satisfaction.

Perth Prison Visitors Support & Advice Centre is run by CrossReach and is one of our Children & Family Services.

Coming through the main prison visitors entrance, the centre is situated on the right-hand side, adjacent to the visitors car park.

We are primarily here to support families of prisoners, some of whom may have travelled a long distance.

"Thank you to all who have been here for support and advice. The Centre has been massive parts of this journey for myself and don’t know what I would have done without it! Iv not just had support to do with the prison but even info on sleeping better to just a general cheer me up chit chat! More prisons need places like this as not everyone is familiar with these surroundings. Others have said the same to me and we all agree you are much more relaxed after being here. Thanks again"

"Great Visitor Centre always made very welcome, staff will always talk away and help if they can. Kids play area is great keeps them busy. I always feel better and more relaxed."
