The Families First sessions aim to give prisoners the opportunity to develop and maintain stronger relationships with their children, grandchildren, nieces/nephews and younger siblings (however priority is given to prisoners and their children). Therefore all prisoners attending the family visit should have children visit otherwise they will not be permitted into the visit.
The Maximum number of visitors to attend is one adult and there is no limit to children as long as the responsible adult can safely manage. Applications for numbers outside of these limits will be at the discretion of the Families First Manger.
