Family Pathway Centre

The Family Pathway Centre at HMP Oakwood is run by the Help & Advice Line for Offender's Wives, Partners and Families (known as HALOW (Birmingham)) and is a Registered Charity (No: 1002675). The Charity was set up in 1985 to provide information, counselling and support to prisoners' families and friends.

The Family Pathway Centre offers the following services:
- Information, Guidance and Sign Posting service e.g. Housing, Finance, Alcohol and Substance Misuse, Domestic Violence etc;
- Support and advice with prison procedures.
- We provide someone to talk to in confidence if you need support.
- We provide facilities to assist visitors e.g. having an on-site wheelchair available for disabled visitors and a multi faith prayer area.
- We offer all visitors the chance to give feedback to help improve the experience.

When you arrive at the Family Pathway Centre, the staff will guide you through the booking-in procedure. All adult visitors will have their photograph and fingerprints taken on the biometrics system. We also offer the option for children who are visiting their father to have photographs taken. This will make future visits easier as you will not have to bring all your identification on every visit, just the first time you attend.

We provide Family Support and Children’s Work in the visits Halls and on events.
