Doors will open at the YOI – but book now ...

Polmont YOI
Polmont YOI

Polmont Young Offenders Institute will be opening its doors for a change this month.

The YOI is one of several locations taking part in this year’s Doors Open Days, which give the public a chance to satisfy their curiosity and see some places that are usually out of bounds. Booking is essential to see round the facility. To book, contact by September 2. You will need to take two forms of ID with you.

Among the other venues opening this year is the fascinating, ultra high-tech Scottish Centre for Simulation & Clinical Human Factors.

In the heart of Forth Valley Royal Hospital, this state-of-the-art training facility is the only one of its kind in Scotland – and you may be able to take part to see how it all works. Visit for more details.
