Thanks for your email. I am willing for the following to go Public if you keep my name confidential , as I do not wish to be identified as I could be stopped from visiting altogether
I am a prison visitor at a YOI, visiting young lads whose families are unable to visit them due to distance or other reasons. During the 8 years I have been doing this I have visited 5 lads who are on IPP sentences. They all moved on to adult prisons, and are still in prison although they are all well over tariff . All 5 self-harmed, suffered with depression and found it difficult to plan for the future, as they didn't feel they had one. Presumably that is still ongoing.
