Inductions - HMP Dartmoor
Choices staff and volunteers see all new prisoners during their induction process with the aim to highlight possible needs and services available.
If a prisoner highlights areas of need regarding family matters follow-up work can be undertaken. Prisoners are given the opportunity to highlight their needs during their induction or put in an application for one of our team to come and see them at a later date.
Child centred family visits
These take place once every school holiday, and are aimed at helping prisoners engage with their children. These visits are run by Choices Consultancy Service, with multi agency involvement. Parent and child activities are organised for the duration of these visits. These are available to prisoners on Standard and Enhanced regime, are by application and subject to security approval.
