Integrated family support worker evaluation

Nepacs has developed an integrated family support programme that works in prisons and in the community across the north east. Nepacs currently has family support/engagement workers (FSWs or FEWs) in four prisons in the area and two integrated family support advocates (IFSAs) working across 12 local authority areas. This began in 2011 with a number of funding sources and was awarded Big Lottery funding until 2016.
