The Visit’s centre is called ‘The Jigsaw Centre’ and it is an independent funded charity, their website is

Jigsaw Visitors’ Centre is a open 7 days a week, 9 to 5 for support and advice for those visiting their loved ones in HMP Leeds. They understand that prisoners’ families are just as affected by imprisonment as prisoners are, and they hope to make that experience easier. They have a welcoming Centre with café, information, free fruit while you wait, a play room for the children, and free internet access. Their Family Support Workers are there 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.

They hope their website, mentioned above, can answer some of your questions and concerns. If not, please contact them on: 0113 2032771 or email

The staff at the centre are really helpful and always sit down with first time visitors to run the do’s and don’ts.

There is a tea bar to purchase snacks before the visit. On the visit, you can purchase bags of sweets, which when un-opened, the prisoner can take back to their cell.

You CANNOT book visits via the visits centre, although you can cancel them via the centre. Make sure though you keep a record of your reference number if you wish to cancel. This then makes sure the right visit is cancelled.

Visits can be booked via telephone and also via email:- which is really helpful and saves long waits trying to get through on the telephone. The email service is very fast and efficient.

The visits are short compared to some prisons i.e. one hour but everyone goes onto the visit together, there aren’t usually major delays and there is no need to get to the prison hours before the visits are due to commence.

Parking within the prison grounds is quite limited.

Property can be handed in by arrangement. The property centre is located just inside the visits centre.
