Worried or concerned about a prisoner
If you are worried or concerned about a prisoner please let us know as soon as possible.
You may be especially worried after contact with a prisoner: this includes:
- as you leave prison after a visit
- after a phone call
- if you receive a letter
We take the health of prisoners seriously and want to know about concerns regarding:
- suicidal thoughts
- anxiety problems
- medication or ill health requirements
- drug or alcohol issues
We can make sure a social worker, Case Management Co-ordinator [or other support as required] is informed and able to visit and talk with the prisoner.
There are several support groups that can also help you and give advice about your situation.
