Welcome to the Jigsaw Visitors’ Centre website

Jigsaw Visitors’ Centre is a registered charity that from 29th Sept will be open 7 days a week, 8.15am to 4.30pm for support and advice for those visiting their loved ones in HMP Leeds.

We understand that prisoners’ families are just as affected by imprisonment as prisoners are, and we hope to make that experience easier. We have a welcoming Centre with café, information, a play room for the children, and free internet access. Our Family Support Workers are here to help you and also, where appropriate, put you in touch with other organisations in the community who can help you to deal with those issues which can arise with a loved one in custody.

We hope this website can answer some of your questions and concerns. If not, please contact us on: 0113 2032771 or email info@jigsawvisitorscentre.org.uk.
