Abstract

This article provides an overview of a person-centred counselling service provided by a voluntary sector counselling centre in a local remand prison. The two year funded pilot project was provided specifically for male prisoners who have been affected by issues of domestic violence. The article reports on the successful partnership formed between these two agencies, the successful engagement with the services aims by prison staff and the positive effects on prisoners accessing the service. It reports on the views of the prison population, those both living and working in the prison sector, in their own words regarding the effectiveness of the provision of this service in its first year of delivery.
