HMP Lincoln to partner with a top family charity, Ormiston Families Charity to provide more than a few services to inmates and families of inmates. As one of three prisons, Lincoln has paired up with the Lincolnshire Action Trust in what has been said to be a pleasing partnership.
Once the partnership is complete, the Ormiston Families Charity and LAT will jointly manage services provided in HMP North Sea Camp in Boston, HMP Stocken in Rutland, and HMP Lincoln.
Working with exceptional organizations by offering guidance, support, and advice to those who have been affected by being in prison, the hope is to ease the confusion and trauma that can often accompany a child or young person’s visit to prison to see family friend or relative who is incarcerated.
According to Alison Goddard, the Lincolnshire Action Trust Chief Executive, the working together of the two groups is exciting, and LAT is looking forward to continuing the great work that has been started in the prisons of Lincolnshire.
Both charities will run the visitor centers, as well as offer many different services, including special children’s visits to each of the three prisons, and Story Book Dads.
Ormiston Families Charity has made it their mission to help support the families, children and young people that have been affected by a family member in prison. The goal is to help teach those with incarcerated loved ones to manage the life challenges they face and improve their chances for a healthy, successful life. It also provides support for young people and children, including mental health services, help to bridge the gap between home and school, domestic abuse help and more.
LAT works to provide an innovative and proactive partnership to help rehabilitation of offenders, so the risk of repeating past crimes is reduced.
