Online Training: Children and Young People Affected By Imprisonment

With the prison population across England & Wales near a record high, so too is the number of children being affected by the imprisonment of a parent. It’s estimated that around 100,000 children have a father or mother behind bars right now, and research estimates that around 1 in 15 children (7%) will experience a parent’s imprisonment at some point during their time at school.

Many children with a parent in prison go on to lead positive and fulfilling lives. However, a range of research shows that they are more likely to suffer from problems later in life, including mental health problems, homelessness and poverty.

This interactive training will enable teachers and support practitioners to understand the impact of imprisonment on children and young people and give them the knowledge and resources needed to support them.

Who is it for?

The training is aimed at frontline staff working directly with children, including teachers, family support workers, and early help teams.
