Friends and families of prisoners in north east prisons are invited to join upcoming virtual support and service user group meetings, organised by Nepacs, taking place for each prison in the north east.

There will be one session per prison taking place via Zoom – lasting 1 hour in total.

The aim of the groups is to give anyone with a loved one in a north east prison a ‘voice’.

Anyone who attends will have the chance to:

  • Share your experience of visiting prison, video calls or during lockdown
  • Talk about the issues you face when your loved one is in prison
  • Receive or give support to others
  • Raise any concerns
  • Offer suggestions on how the prison or Nepacs can improve support for families or friends

Details of the next meetings in 2021 are:

Holme House – 14 April 10.30am
Deerbolt – 18 March 10.30 am
