Support, advice and friendship for families visiting Perth Prison.

We are primarily here to support families of prisoners, some of whom may have travelled a long distance. 

Our centre is a warm and welcoming place to relax, with a play area for children. Our staff and volunteers can offer non-judgemental help, advice and emotional support. And of course, we have plenty of refreshments for everyone.
