Life in Prison: Contact with Families and Friends

HM Inspectorate of Prisons has published a paper summarising the literature concerning the importance of prisoners maintaining relationships with the outside world and, in particular, with their family and friends. ‘Life in Prison: Contact with Families and Friends’ draws on evidence from recent inspections of adult prisons and survey data from inspection reports. It provides an overview of the ways in which prisoners are able to keep in contact with their family and friends, and the ways they experience this.
