They’ve Been Sent To Prison

Families Outside has produced a new service card which gives a very clear message to service users seeing the card as to what we can offer by way of support for families affected by imprisonment.

We are delighted that Renfrewshire Council has already bought into the concept: a very simple and cost-effective way of circulating information on the service we provide. It is now anticipated that the council will circulate the card through CJSW (including court social workers), Education (including through our CPD training for teachers), and Health and Social Care.


Our goal now is to promote this new card to the remaining 31 Community Planning Partnerships.

With interest in the concept from Midlothian, Scottish Borders and Fife, we are so far delighted with the positive response.

A copy of a business case for the cards that we will be making available to all Community Planning Partnerships (CPPs) can be downloaded here.

We have generic cards available, while Renfrewshire Council opted to have a version with their logo to promote the service.
