Family Matters is there for you
We understand that having someone close to you sent to prison, or continuing to offend can be the cause of serious problems, particularly if the offender is the main bread winner or carer. Children in particular may struggle to cope – teachers and other key contacts may not event be made aware of the traumatic changes at home. Missing vital signs may have life long consequences for the child and the family. Our project workers help create a protective buffer round the family, offer practical advice and emotional support.
Family Matters can answer your questions, providing you with the information you need and help to access other support in the community. We can help you keep family ties open and improve outcomes for everyone involved.
