Prison Visitation

We are here to listen

The St Vincent de Paul Society operates the Visitor Information Service in the visitor waiting area here at the Metropolitan Remand Centre. 

We maintain information on government departments and other organisations that provide services to prisoners and their families. We are not counsellors but provide up-to-date information on where you can go for help. 

The service is here to help ease the stress and anxiety of people visiting inmates. Come and talk to us if you are:

  • Visiting for the first time;
  • Feeling anxious, nervous or unsure what to do;
  • Need someone to talk too;
  • Need help finding where to access specialist services that provide assistance and support to prisoners and their families.

The St Vincent de Paul Society also provides material assistance to families. 

If you need help with food, clothing, furniture or other material assistance, please contact us 10am-3pm, Monday to Friday on: 1800 305 330
