Hear Our Voice - Support for children with a family member in prison

Pact (Prison Advice and Care Trust) provides one-to-one mentoring support to young people aged 7-17 affected by the imprisonment of a family member. This can include young people affected at any stage of the criminal justice system, from arrest to post-release. The support will usually take place at the young person’s school during school hours, although an alternative venue can be arranged if necessary. In addition to this one-to-one support, Pact also run activity-focussed group sessions which take place outside of school hours (either after school or on a weekend). These sessions provide a space where young people can talk about their experiences with other people in a similar situation as well as access to group support from peers without the presence of their parents. These sessions aim to empower and uncover the voices of these young people through a range of activities including: • Film-making • Photography • Street dance • Graffiti art Anyone can refer a young person to this agency and young people can self-refer.
