The tea bars play an important role in the Visitor Centre and prison visits room. In providing refreshments in the Visitor Centre you offer a warm welcome and much needed drink to those that have travelled to visit their loved one. In the prison visits hall the tea bar supports both families and prisoners. You help create a warm, social atmosphere and generally contribute to the quality of the visits. Volunteers in this role will be based in the Tea Bar in the Visitor Centre and the prison visits hall inside the prison. Volunteers who do not wish to enter the prison can remain in the Visitor Centre.
Visitors’ Centres at HMP Durham, HMP Frankland, HMP Low Newton, HMP Holme House, HMP Kirk Levington Grange, HMYOI Deerbolt and HMP Northumberland
