I found my family day visit very enjoyable and would highly recommend to anybody who hasn’t been before

(HMP Oakwood 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.

You are all so kind and made me feel like a respected human being again and not just a prisoner’s wife. Believe me that was so comforting and humbling.

(Stafford Visitor)

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