Regional charity supporting prisoners’ families invites members of the public to their annual public meeting

This year our annual general meeting and public meeting will take place on Thursday 8 November 2018 at the Council Room, Hotel Indigo, Durham City, DH1 3HL. 

Nepacs is a long standing charity which works across the north east region to help support a positive future for prisoners and their families. Its staff and volunteers provide much valued services to support friends and families of prisoners, in seven prison across the north east and within the community, including prison visitors’ centres, play areas, youth projects, family support and the Teesside, Newcastle and Durham courts project. 

Members of the public are welcome to attend the event from 6.30pm to hear our guest speaker Kathy Evans, chief executive of Children England who will give an address entitled: More wealth than money on the added value which the voluntary sector can bring to providing services for the most vulnerable in society, including children affected by the imprisonment of a parent.

During her career Kathy has been the Chair of the Standing Committee for Youth Justice, a trustee of the Children’s Rights Alliance for England, a member of the ACMD Hidden Harm implementation group and DCSF Care Matters advisory group.
