You now have the option to send correspondence by email directly from your computer to the prison that in turn will be printed off and given to the prisoner. Messages cost 40 pence each and are paid for by the prisoners' family and friends.

It is a quick, simple and easy to use. HMP Oakwood allows you the option to receive a reply from the prisoner for which there is an extra charge of 25 pence. Email a prisoner service was founded by an ex-prisoner who believes increased and varied communication plays a vital role in reducing re-offending and aids the rehabilitation processes.
