HMP Exeter invites you to attend a Cornwall Special of the Checkout Lounge on 19 June. Organisations from across Cornwall are invited to spend the afternoon with us inside the prison.
The Checkout Lounge is part of the Departure Lounge project, an OPCC funded initiative that seeks to provide a more holistic through the gate service to prisoners by offering direct access to third sector and statutory organisations and practical assistance.
We will seek to invite all of the prisoners from Cornwall who are currently in custody in our establishment. The afternoon will give you a chance to talk to the people in custody about your service and to network with services currently operating within the prison and those also attending the event. The afternoon is informal and you are encouraged to host a table for the afternoon.
The event will run as follows:
12.30 – 1.30 – networking hour with coffee and cake
1.30 – 4.00 – meet the prisoners in Exeter from your area to promote your service
It is also a chance to talk with the other providers in the jail and identify/problem solve any issues you have with the prison or people being released form Exeter.
