What will I be asked?
It asks a range of questions about you, the child/ren you are caring for and their parent in prison.
We ask questions which will help us know who is affected by parental imprisonment, like what languages are spoken at home, how old people are, any disabilities they have etc.
We also ask about what you see to be the effects of imprisoning a parent, such as children’s experiences of schooling, and what services or supports you receive, as well as what you think will help.
What happens next?
Findings will be finalised early next year.
