The whole day was fantastic and the best part was that my husband could play and walk around with his daughter.

The HALOW staff are lovely, friendly people. They make you feel very welcome and treat you very well. They are very kind and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They go out of their way to help you. Cannot fault them

Thank you very much for all your help on behalf of my son. This made us feel happier knowing he was eating at night.

The 'Family Pathway Centre' (visitors centre) was an exellent facility, run by the Help and Advice Line for Offenders' Wives (HALOW), who were available before and after visits to offer information, advice, and guidance and a signposting service to support agencies. There was a multi-faith room and children's play area, and refreshments were available. Access for visitors with disabilities was good.
