Visitors manifesto – families of prisoners call for change

Nepacs has launched a manifesto for change which sets out 16 priority areas where they feel the government could make improvements which would:

  • make it easier for children and families to visit their loved one in prison and help to maintain family ties during the sentence

  • give visitors and worried relatives more information about prison, procedures, and support that is available to help them survive the sentence.
