Lady Gowrie Tasmania personnel regularly volunteer to support child/family visitation sessions at the Risdon Prison.
Volunteers assist in planning and setting up suitable indoor and outdoor activities for the child and their incarcerated parent to participate. They also assist in the provision of a snack for the children to have with their parent.
This volunteer program is a continuation of a project undertaken some years ago by Lady Gowrie Tasmania and the Early Years Foundation to upgrade the visitor section at the Prison to make it more conducive to supporting positive relationships between the child and their incarcerated parent.
This rewarding program is an example of the organisations commitment to social inclusion and the willingness of staff to support others beyond the Gowrie community.
