Prison Phone have been saving inmates at HMP Kirkham money on their calls from the prison to any UK mobile phone since 2013.
We do this by allocating a dedicated and secure local number to your mobile phone, this means when the inmate at Kirkham prison calls the new local number we have provided they will be charged at just the local landline rate (around 10p per minute) rather than the standard mobile rate (which is around 40p per minute).
This in turn helps to stretch the inmates PINS phone credit further and reduces the amount you need to send in for them to top up!

Here’s some facts about Kirkham Prison
HMP Kirkham is a category D prison in Kirkham, Lancashire. Opened in 1962, the prison has capacity for 657 men.
There are 24 small residential units, providing living accommodation, 13 were 20- and 22-person units and two were 40-bed units with integral sanitation. There is also a 77-bed admissions unit, which had been developed as a reception and first night centre.
Before its opening in 1962, the site was used as an RAF technical training center. The Home Office took over the site in the early 1960s to convert it to hold male prisoners. Additional accommodation units were added in the 1990s, but some parts of the prison date back to the 1940s.
George Reynolds, former owner of Darlington FC, spent part of a three year sentence for tax evasion here after £500,000 cash was found in the boot of his car. After 14 months, in December 2006, he was released on curfew, but was recaptured in April 2007 for breaking the terms of his curfew, and held for two weeks.
