Award supports families affected by imprisonment

Posted in News on Friday, 13 May 2016
Award supports families affected by imprisonment We are delighted to announce that through the support of the Big Lottery Fund, we are now able to extend our work of supporting families who are affected by the imprisonment of a close relative, to HMP Barlinnie and HMP Castle Huntly.

The impact that imprisonment of a close relative can have on young children and their families can be immense. Imprisonment can create significant challenges for family members and issues often remain hidden as they can feel isolated and unaware of who they can turn to for support. 

Our work seeks to address this and helps to reduce the impact that imprisonment has on family life. It achieves this by fostering stronger family relationships, which contributes to better outcomes for children.  Our work also plays a part in reducing reoffending and the generational cycle of offending.
