All facilities at Yarl’s Wood are designed with the needs of our residents firmly in mind. All bedrooms have en-suite wet room and toilet and are tastefully decorated with floral curtains, wooden furniture and secure cupboards in which our residents can lock their belongings.
We have developed a comprehensive list of activities and actively encourage our residents to take part. These vary from sporting events and arts and crafts to access to hair and beauty treatments, to name a few.
Our residents also have access to IT facilities both in the libraries and the designated IT rooms where they can send and receive emails, play games or study.
Our staff work hard to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our residents as much as possible and, as such, have developed a regular monthly meeting with residents to find out what items they would wish to be able to purchase from the Yarl’s Wood shop. It is initiatives like these that help to ensure that our residents feel that they are being heard, something that is of high priority to the staff at Yarl’s Wood.
