Supporting Welsh Mothers

Case study: supporting Welsh mothers 

Pact and Change Grow Live (formerly Sova) partnered to devise and deliver the Visiting Mum service supporting Welsh women at HMP Eastwood Park in Gloucestershire. Cardiff University’s independent evaluation identified the service effectively improved wellbeing among mothers, including reducing the risk of self-harm, while also improving long-term outcomes for their children.  

Since 2020, with funding from Welsh Government and HMPPS, Visiting Mum has been commissioned to run from HMP Eastwood Park and HMP Styal in Cheshire - the two most common prisons for women from Wales.
