Prison Phone have been saving inmates at HMP Lindholme 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 Lindholme 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 Lindholme Prison

HMP Lindholme is a category C/D prison in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. Opened in 1985, the prison can hold up to 1,010 male inmates at once.

Accomodation consists of 10 wings (A to G and L wings). There are three large, modern, purpose-built wings (G, J and K). In addition to these, L wing was built as temporary accommodation and contains 30 double cells and currently holds the more vulnerable population. The rest of the accommodation consists of six small units (A to F wings), each containing 64 beds on eight spurs. These buildings were part of the original RAF camp and are sited around the main exercise yard. On A to F wings, prisoners have access to their own rooms, with a room key, and to a communal landing, where there is a refrigerator, television, hot water boiler, shower and toilet.

A brutal attack, filmed on a mobile phone, was carried out, in which a “bully” asks a fellow inmate: “should I break his leg?”. The video was sent to the mother of the victim, who sent it to the Mirror.
