Price : Free

This report is one of a series of Spotlight reports published as part of the NSPCCs All Babies Count campaign. All Babies Count aims to raise awareness of the importance of pregnancy and the first year of life to a child's development. Existing reports in this series explore the impact on babies of parental drug and alcohol misuse and perinatal mental illnesses.

This report shines a spotlight on babies affected by the criminal justice system. We believe that all children deserve the best start in life. Having a parent or a significant adult involved in the criminal justice system should be treated as a strong marker of additional support needs in a child's life, beginning at conception.
