A huge thank you to Dan for his time, effort and care into making my wedding day extra special

(HMP Oakwood Visitor)

Very helpful & welcoming staff, especially as this is my first visit

(HMP Birmingham Visitor)

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.
