Imagine being a child and having your mum or dad suddenly taken away from you because they have gone to prison. Unable to open a birthday present together or blow out the candles on your birthday cake.

That is the reality for 45,000 children just like Jessica in Australia right now. Ordinary children going through very difficult life circumstances and they are largely invisible.

Children like Jessica end up serving their own sentence even though it is not their crime.

SHINE for Kids accompanies children on prison visits and provides advice and support. We raise awareness in communities and schools and support the rights and needs of children like Jessica. Last year SHINE facilitated over 15,000 child visits in prisons.

Help Jessica SHINE.
