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.

Thank goodness for HALOW staff. It is reassuring to ring with questions as it is very difficult to get through to the main prison switchboard

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