Support for Prisoners’ children and their families

We provide support to children with a parent in prison, or children whose parents have been in prison and have recently been released.

Our ‘whole family’ model means we offer support to the child, their parent/carer and, where possible, the prisoner parent post-release.

We provide families with:

  • Advice on what to tell children about imprisonment
  • One to one support for children to discuss their feelings and wishes regarding contact
  • Peer group support for children where they can meet others who share their experience whilst having fun
  • A support group for adults who have a loved one in prison
  • Advocacy support (we can speak to prison, probation and other services on your behalf)

Parents, including both the parent/carer and the prisoner parent post-release are welcome to join our Family Recovery Programme.
