Family support

Our family support teams based in HMP Holme House, HMP&YOI Deerbolt, HMP Northumberland, HMP Durham, HMP Frankland and HMP&YOI Low Newton support prisoners and their families to prepare for release.

Family support workers can provide one to one or group support (through our Heading Home project) to prisoners or families concerned about release. Our Heading Home project is specifically designed to offer guidance and practical information to support prisoners and their families during this challenging period, while raising awareness of the support they can access in their locality. The project also wants to provide families with the opportunity to discuss the impact their relatives’ offending behaviour has had on the relationship.
