Charity information

Jigsaw Visitors Centre

We support and advise the families and friends visiting their loved ones in HMP Leeds. We aim to empower individuals and their families to make positive choices about their lives and lifestyles. We help to maintain and strengthen family ties that are strained by imprisonmnet and provide a bridge between those in prison and their families outside.
All visitors to the prison come through Jigsaw Visitors' Centre first. We give every new visitor a 'first time' talk to explain what we do, what will happen on a visit, prison procedures and what help they can get elsewhere. We provide a safe, warm waiting spae and a cafe, free internet, books, and information about outside agencies. We organise monthly special family days between prisoners and their families such as 'Cooking with Dad' classes. We will soon be delivering courses on 'Healthy Relationships' within the prison to prisoners and their partners together.
