Families Left Behind

Families Outside in partnership with Fife Council’s Adult Basic Education and Family Community Support Team, brought together four women who were affected by imprisonment or the criminal justice system.

After conversation, the women felt that their own experiences could help others in this situation and so we met as a group once a week for ten weeks.

Over time the group members grew in confidence and found meeting with others to be a great source of support.


Families Left Behind is the outcome of those meetings and is already proving to be a very popular resource, requested by social work, prisons, and third sector organisations.
