Families Outside Peer Support Group

Do you know a child or young person with a family member in prison? Families Outside can help!

Every year in Scotland it is estimated that more than 20,000 children and young people are affected by parental imprisonment, this figure does not include those with another family member in prison.

Despite all the challenges that the Coronavirus has brought, Families Outside are still supporting families through their ‘Our Voice’ Peer Support Group. The group offers peer support to children and young people aged between 8-18 years affected by imprisonment. The group is delivered via Zoom online (during lockdown) and is for all children, young people, and families whether they have regular contact with their family member in prison, or no contact at all.

Next Peer Support Group will be held on Thursday 27th May, 6 – 7.30pm Via Zoom

If you know of any children or young people who are affected by imprisonment and would be interested in coming to our Peer Support Group please share the group details and contact us to make a referral. If you know of any children or young people who are unable to come to the group but would still like support please contact them to discuss this further.
