We offer safe and welcoming places for famillies to relax before and after a prison visit.

This can help in all sorts of ways. You can get practical support, including information about the prison, visiting procedures and other support services available to you. You will also find emotional support – someone who listen to your concerns and offer non-judgemental advice.

There are toys and books for children to play with, and you can all help yourselves to free refreshments. 

Our aim is to help maintain contact between prisoners and their families while improving everyone’s wellbeing.
