Description of the procurement:

NOMS Commissioning Intentions sets an expectation on prison providers to work with Local Authorities and third sector partners to promote inclusion of, and maximise opportunities to offender's families and their significant others. Visitors' centres can be a focal point for offering support to families if they are used for services other than visits and include homework clubs and the delivery of family learning activities. This contract will also require creative approaches to delivering services to engage families and significant others where relationships are broken down, to develop and re-establish positive relationships. The range of services required at each establishment will be determined locally and will vary depending on a range of factors, including but not limited to; location, accessibility available facilities and the category of the establishment.
