Supporting children and young people impacted by parental imprisonment.
Children Heard And Seen is a charity that supports children and families impacted by parental imprisonment. We offer 1:1 support, mentors for children, group activities and arts and music based therapy to children who are facing the shame and stigma that is attached to having a parent in prison.
We actively encourage referrals from families themselves.
Targeted Interventions and Activity Groups
To support the parents of the children who attend the activity days and/or being mentored to facilitate positive change for their children with a view to reducing intergenerational cycles of behaviour.
All of the services identified cannot be delivered in isolation, in fact ‘Children Heard and Seen’, recognises the importance of joint working:
Schools (primary and secondary)
Health (e.g. Health visitors and midwives)
Prisons especially Prison liaison
Probation Services and Community Rehabilitation agencies
Any other relevant agency
