Is there any support with explaining prison to children?

Yes, the Croft or Families Outside can talk to you about this and there are several books and websites which can help explain things to children at different ages and stages.  There is no one right way to tell children about imprisonment – every family is different. We can help you explore the options and find the way that is best for your child. The Croft also works to train teachers of local schools about how prison effects children. For many families, involving the school can be very positive and will help to make sure that children are being supported consistently at home and at school.
