The Prisoner Visiting Program

For many prisoners they do not have anyone to visit them while they serve their sentence.

They may have lost touch with their families and their friends or they may not have any family left. They could be from overseas or interstate.

Volunteers are able to visit socially isolated prisoners to help them develop social skills such as communication and provide them with news from ‘outside the walls’.

The program endeavours to match volunteers and prisoner with similar interests’ ­so visits are engaging for both the prisoner and the volunteer.

Prisoners interested in this program can contact their case manager for details.
