In April 2017 Cyrenians took over the management the Prison Visitors Centre at HMP Addiewell. Our Visitor Centre is committed to supporting Families Affected by Imprisonment. We do this by being a bridge between the family, prison and the community through the development of trusted and secure relationships.
The Impact of Imprisonment
There are 7, 995 prisoners in Scotland and approximately 27,000 children are affected by imprisonment in Scotland each year.
The impact of imprisonment on families may include:
- Loss of income/money worries.
- Stress from the media coverage
- Changes to family relationships
- Struggling to keep in contact with your family
- Moving house or school
Our Support & Advice
We support first time and regular visitors with general prison information, advice, signposting to other organisations or services, as well as providing emotional and practical support.
