A) Facilities list now includes a pictoral representation of each item.

B) We are currently working on an audio CD for the Induction package. This will consist of a collection of discs such as IEP scheme or Employment and Activities. These will be held in the prison library and can be borrowed in the same way as a book. We are currently looking at a protocol for "prisoner notices". Also we have a multi-media screen and TV channel with pictoral/ easy read support.
