This report reviews the practice learning fromtwo pilot services for the children and familiesof prisoners that Barnardo’s ran in 2010-2011. The services were innovative in that they were community-based rather than ‘point of contact’ services. The approach of the services was to ‘engage children of offenders to reduce the isolation, financial hardship and stigma attached to having a parent in the criminal justice system and to increase their social emotional and mental wellbeing’.
