SPS recognise the absolutely negative impact that imprisonment can have on family life. That is why supporting and maintaining family links and promoting positive relationships generally while the family member is in prison is one of our key priorities. We recognise that such positive relationships can make a valuable contribution in supporting individuals to desist from further offending.

We have recently published an online version of our Family Support Booklet, which provides information for those with a loved one who has passed away in prison. This booklet, produced in partnership with NHS and Families Outside, can be found here: Family Support Booklet
