‘Putting Your Child First’

Putting Your Child FirstA survival guide for families when a family member goes to prison

It is hard enough for adults to cope with all the changes and emotions they experience when a family member is in prison. We all need to remember that it is often even harder for children and young people. This book is a survival guide for families when a parent first goes to prison.

Children and their carers often feel very alone as they struggle to face a variety of difficulties. This book offers insights to help guide and inform carers of children of prisoners about the different issues children and young people can face on a daily basis, and provides suggestions and ideas to help carers give their families the best opportunity for a positive future.
