We are forever strengthening our relationship with HMP Liverpool and are now linking in much more closely with the children and family’s team there. Through them we have built a new partnership with the CCA (Community Chaplains Association). Community Chaplaincies work alongside prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families, offering mentoring and holistic support within prison, through the gates and out in the community.
Even though our focus is on helping the children, we know that the caregivers in the community can also feel isolated and want someone non-judgmental to talk to. If you are a parent, grandparent or family carer and would appreciate someone to talk to or spend some time with please let us know. All CCA volunteers are DBS checked and trained in the challenges that are faced by prisoner’s families. Please let us know if this might be helpful to you or a member of your family.
