Covid-19 Updates

Please check this page regularly for any updates regarding Covid-19

HMP Forest Bank are dedicated to providing clear and open communication with residents family and friends even more so during this difficult time. 

Covid-19 has affected the nation and continues to impact on daily prison life. On this page we will communicate with you any changes that shall affect you or loved ones for example the recent opening and closure of visits, changes to resident money and regime restrictions. 

We ask for your patience and understanding during this time, a prison environment is still classed as high risk so changes may not always reflect those happening in the community, but rest assured we want to return to normality as quickly and as safely as possible and are working hard behind the scenes to make this happen. 

Social visits are currently still going ahead on a reduced schedule for more information visit the page here.
