'The Visit' – what will your first visit to see Mum or Dad be like?Please show this to your children before their first prison visit

A child’s first visit to a correctional centre can be a daunting experience.

On this site is a special page for children who visit parents, relatives of friends in correctional centres. It explains the visiting process in words they will understand and is designed to ease any fears or tension they may harbour about visiting loved ones in the environment behind high walls and razor wire.

Before they visit for the first time, show it and read it to them.

You can also download it as a printable PDF in English, Spanish, Arabic and Vietnamese.
