The Child and Family Centres offer three important services to visitors:

Drop in Service Child and Family Centres provide a “drop in” for families before or after a visit. Visitors can use the Centre to relax, have refreshments, change nappies, use the toilet facilities, and wait for their next visit or their transport arrangements back home.

Prison In-Visits Program The Prison In-Visits program supports positive family interaction and provides a variety of arts, craft and diversionary activities for children to share with their parents. This program is conducted within the relevant visiting area of the Correctional Centre.

Child/ Parent Activity Days This program ensures that children are able to stay connected to their parent, maintaining their child-parent bond despite the barriers of prison. This child focused program emphasizes the importance of the offender parent having sole responsibility for their children, having an opportunity to practice their parenting skills and to connect with their children over a longer period of time. This program is only offered in school holidays and is conducted within the Correctional Centre.
