Visiting a Prison
At HMP Oakwood we understand that is it constructive for prisoners and their family and friends to have the opportunity to retain close relationships and family ties whilst in custody.
We realise that prisons can be intimidating places for visitors who have never experienced the visiting process and particularly stressful and exhausting for young children who accompany their parents/guardians when undergoing the necessary entry and exit procedures.
We therefore aim to ensure that all visits to HMP Oakwood are conducted in a professional yet relaxed, child friendly atmosphere and that all visitors are treated courteously and politely.
