The imprisonment of a family member can have significant and long-lasting emotional and practical consequences for those who remain on the outside. Stigma and isolation often ensures these families remain hidden from statutory services, and withdrawn from community support, increasing their vulnerability. Increasing awareness is vital to ensuring these families receive the support they need to overcome the potential impact on their mental health, financial stability and social wellbeing.
This training on 24 January 2018, 9.30am – 1pm at POPS Head Office, 1079 Rochdale Road, Blackley, Manchester, M9 8AJ, originally developed by Action for Prisoners and Offenders Families, is for all professionals who work with children, families and offenders including children’s centre workers, troubled families workers, school staff, play workers, health visitors, and family intervention teams. This course gives a clear overview of the issues facing prisoners’ families, examines in depth the emotional and practical impact of imprisonment on families and explores a range of strategies and resources to help you support them. The training utilises a mixture of taught material, group-work, video content and desk-based activities to engage all learning styles.
POPS (Partners of Prisoners and Families Support Group) deliver a range of engaging workshops and training designed to raise awareness about the issues that families face, explore the impact of family member offending, promote effective inter-agency working and improve service delivery.
