Children Heard and Seen was set up in June 2014 to mitigate the effects of parental imprisonment on children, young people and their families. This year has raised unprecedented challenges for our organisation and the families that we support. However, our ability to quickly adapt service provisions at the beginning of lockdown and beyond has allowed us to celebrate great success. From using online support to drastically extend the reach of our work, to moving in to an exciting new office space and being honoured with an award by the Criminal Justice Alliance, we are incredibly proud of the work we have done this year in supporting families impacted by parental imprisonment. In 2020, we supported 225 children impacted by parental imprisonment.
To keep you up to date with all of the exciting things going on at Children Heard and Seen, we’ve put together a Newsletter with all of the highlights of the last 6 months.
