NEPACS case study
Supporting the children and families of prisoners in the North East of England
Nepacs believe that families hold the key to reducing reoffending and ensuring effective resettlement. They believe that if work is done to support the children and families of prisoners, helping them to maintain and strengthen contact, then it improves outcomes for all involved, including prisons. These beliefs underpin the range of services that they provide in the North East of England, from running prison visitor services to providing play facilities for children and family support. This case study focuses on two projects of Nepacs: Support at Court; and their Integrated Family Support Programme.
