Support and Advice for Families Affected by Imprisonment
When someone goes to prison it can be a challenging time for the whole family. At Families Outside we are here to provide you and your family with information and support regarding any issues you might be facing as a result of your family member’s imprisonment. We can help you
- To understand what will happen at different stages of the justice process following your family member’s arrest
- To stay in touch with your family member while they are in prison
- To support any children and young people in your family at this challenging time
- To access the support available to you from the prison and other relevant organisations
If you are looking for information or support, please contact our helpline on 0800 254 0088 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
