Partnerships with external agencies


Volunteers from the Samaritans visit every Saturday morning and prisoners are able to talk with them in absolute confidence. If a prisoner wishes to see a Samaritans volunteer they can ask an officer to book them an appointment through the safer custody officer.

Alternatively, prisoners may call the Samaritans at any time of the day through their pin phone, or request the Samaritans phone from one of the residential prison officers. Any conversation between the prisoner and the Samaritans volunteer is completely confidential and will not be discussed with prison staff.
