We were established in 2017 under the name ‘MyTime’ but have since changed our name to Time-Matters UK. Our focus is on helping children impacted by parental imprisonment but we also try our best to support whole families which includes parents and carers in the community, and parents who are in, or have been in prison.
We are not affiliated to any particular prison; rather our support is typically community-based. Some groups or 1:1 sessions are just for fun, others for exploring emotions and feelings, others to make positive changes in the world with our children as leaders and changemakers.
We also provide training for organisations who wish to set up a similar service in their own geographical area.
