Family Visits HMP Channings Wood
Choices provide Family Visits in HMP Channings Wood.
These visits are available to prisoners with or without children who are on enhanced status and are therefore part of the prison incentive scheme. These visits can help to strengthen and maintain family ties between prisoners and their families.
Family days are designed to be more relaxed than regular visiting sessions. Prisoners can get up from their seats and interact with their families. Activities for the whole family are provided by Choices staff and volunteers. Prisoners have the opportunity to sit down and enjoy lunch together with their family. Family days are very popular with prisoners and families. Requests for attendance to these days must come via prisoner application only.
Choices work with partnership agencies to deliver Child centred family days which are held during school holiday times. These visits are for prisoners with their children. Gym activities are available for all family members.
