Family Visits HMP Dartmoor
Choicesprovide Child Centered Visits in HMP Dartmoor four times per year, during school holiday times.
These visits are available to prisoners with their children or stepchildren. These visits can help to strengthen and maintain family ties between prisoners and their families.
Child Centered Family Visits are designed to be more relaxed than regular visiting sessions. The visit runs from 10am – 4pm. Morning sessions are run in the gym and afternoon sessions are held in the visitors' hall. Choices staff, Prison Officers and volunteers provide fun filled activities for the entire day. A buffet is provided enabling children and families to sit down and eat a meal together. Child Centered Family days are very popular with prisoners and families. Requests for attendance to these days must come via prisoner application only. Application forms can be found on every wing.
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.
