Jigsaw recognises the importance of keeping families together in troubled times, and our North Wales Families’ Prison Bus Service provides family and friends of offenders serving custodial sentences at Altcourse with enhanced opportunities to undertake visits. Services operate from Holyhead – via Llangefni and Bangor – and also from Llandudno via Colwyn Bay and Rhyl. Subject only to passengers helping us to cover transport costs via the Assisted Prison Visit (APV) scheme, there is normally no charge for anyone on benefits. So relax, take the children and enjoy a single straight through return journey, all geared to making it easier for those from North Wales to visit their loved ones.
The arrangements have been agreed with HMP Altcourse, and involve Jigsaw working with PSS, CAIS and Arc Communities to deliver the service.
Full details are described in the Prison Bus Leaflet.
