Prison Love at Golden Grove

A group of prisoners awaiting trial at the remand yard had a rare treat on Saturday when their children were allowed to visit with them.
 
It’s all part of the T&T prison service's attempts to introduce reform and rehabilitation into the over burdened system.
 
It’s visiting day at the Golden Grove but it’s a visit with a difference - for a select few.
 
It’s the only day of the year children are allowed in to see their fathers who've been incarcerated here.
 
This is the Fathers' In Action Programme, which in its 17th year, is one of the ways the prison authorities are attempting to incorporate rehabilitation and reform.
 
It’s also an important way of making prisoners feel connected to their children - growing up on the outside, and who aren't allowed inside on regular visits.
 
Being inside is about following instructions this was perhaps the one the selected fathers will cherish most.
 
for these select prisoners, these are precious minutes, and hours to physically hold their off spring but which only come round once a year.
 
For these men, time is perhaps their worst enemy - but this father's day event, with their children is the only memory they have to cherish long after their families have left and the prison doors are locked.
