Prisoner’s families

Support for families

Families are often affected when a family member is in prison. Family support can be vital throughout the sentence and on release.

Families Outside offer advice and support for families of prisoners.

SACRO offer a travel service for you to visit your family member in prison.

If you have a family member who is being released from prison on licence, you may be visited by a criminal justice social worker. This visit is intended to answer any questions you may have.
