CrÈche At The Mount Prison

19th of December 1997

Would you like to help in a very real and practical way to keep a family together at a time of great strain on partners and their children?
HACRO is starting up the crèche professionally, so that it is open every day and does not collapse through lack of regular support, as happened before.
Visiting is for two hours – far too long for children to sit and talk – every afternoon except Wednesday and on weekend mornings. The prisoners and their families are longing for their children to be cared for during at least part of each visit, so that they can talk in peace and the children wont disturb everyone elses visits. The staff are worried about safety because, at the moment, the children run about unsupervised and accidents have already happened.
This is what we need: 2 paid & qualified childcare workers (part-time); a team of reliable volunteers to work with them; lots of equipment (new or good as new), for
example –
sturdy toys for toddlers
books, activity materials for drawing and painting, games, puzzels, videos,
boardgames for older children
anything else you can think of!
Ages range from 0 – 10. We can collect from you and we also happily accept donations of money to buy equipment. Can you help?
