About this service

The aim of this Service is to reduce re-offending rates of fathers currently in custody, through the maintenance and improvement of their relationships with children and families. It will also expand and improve the current children’s visits programme in partnership with prison staff, fathers and their families.

For all the prisons, work is still in its initial developmental stages. Further work regarding access to services identified and developed, alongside referral systems will have to be considered.

The work will provide a strategic overview of current services offered, and to support the prison in identifying new opportunities to engage with children, families and prisoners.
