Visiting a relative in prison can be extremely traumatic and confusing, especially for a child or young person.

This can involve a whole range of mixed emotions including sadness, fear, anxiety, anger, shame and embarrassment. These feelings are all very common and understandable, but can sometimes be difficult to cope with without expert support, advice and guidance.

As well as providing a reassuring welcome at our visitors’ centres, we offer a range of services for families.
