Did you know that 160,000 children a year have a parent sent to custody?.

Children of prisoners have about three times the risk of developing mental health problems compared to their peer and experience higher levels of social disadvantage.

In addition, maintaining links between prisoners and their families plays an important role in supporting rehabilitation and reducing re offending, with those prisoners who are visited in prison by a partner or family member having a significantly lower re offending rate than those who are not.

As family members affected by imprisonment should have access to information and suppose as soon as someone is sent to prison, while contact between a prisoner and their family’s should be positively encouraged and given greater priory in prison regimes.  For further information go to the web site http://www.criminaljusticealliance.org
