Clinks case study
Nepacs: supporting the children and families of prisoners in the north east
A case study on Nepacs has been published by Clinks (supporting voluntary organisations that work with offenders and their families), and Vonne showcasing some of our work in the north east to support children and families of prisoners.
Nepacs believe that families hold the key to reducing reoffending and ensuring effective resettlement. We believe that if work is done to support the children and families of prisoners, helping them to maintain and strengthen contact, then it improves outcomes for all involved, including prisoners.
These beliefs underpin the range of services that we provide in the north east, from running prison visitor services to providing play facilities for children and family support.
This case study focuses on two of our projects: support at court and our integrated family support programme. Find out more about these projects here.
