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:

  • self-harm
  • 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.

You can contact us online, phone or by mail.

There are several support groups that can also help you and give advice about your situation.
