"Another brilliant day - very useful to learn first aid and good to know what to do if baby or anyone was choking. So grateful to be part of such a rewarding course. Great bonding time, thank you" (Jolly Tots Programme for prisoner, partner and children 0-2 years)

Staff are always polite and friendly, whilst remaining professional

(HMP Oakwood Visitor 2018)

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.

(HMIP report on HMP Oakwood 2013)

To all of you, thank you so much for your help and support and general kindness throughout this hard time. You are doing a wonderful job. Love and thanks.

Really lovely staff who always have a smile

(HMP Birmingham Visitor 2018)

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

(HALOW (Birmingham))

The staff are all funny and make it easier when visiting. The kids love it!
