LAT has a team of staff based at a number of prisons in the region, as well as at IRC Morton Hall, who are able to support families and children. Staff are located at the following sites:
- HMP Hull
- HMP Humber
- HMP Lincoln
- IRC Morton Hall
- HMP North Sea Camp
- HMP Stocken
Our staff can give information about visiting and about the prison / Centre, as well as general advice on anything you may be struggling with such as finances and housing.
Our teams act as a point of contact, encourage visiting by families, and aim to provide information to make visits less daunting for children and for other family members. We can also develop links with schools and other agencies to ensure a father can stay involved in his child’s life whilst in prison. Being Dad, a course to develop and hone parenting skills, is also offered to fathers and carers in prison.
