Children with Family members in prison

Mrs Cooper, Designated Safeguarding Lead -

Approximately 200,000 children in England and Wales have a parent sent to prison each year. 

We hope the leaflet below will help teenagers who have relatives in prison. You might feel isolated, alone, not sure how to get support or talk to other young people in the same situation as you. You may have questions or are looking for a little more information on what happens when someone is arrested, appears at court or goes to prison.

The National Information Centre on Children of Offenders provides information designed to support professionals working with offenders and their children, to help mitigate negative consequences for those children. Please see their website here.
