Outcomes for children of prisoners

Crest’s Children of Prisoners report demonstrates that children of prisoners are at risk of significantly worse outcomes than children not affected by parental imprisonment, including an increased risk of mental health issues and of being involved in the criminal justice system themselves in later life.

Gaps in the system mean that chances to support the needs of the children of prisoners are continually missed. The report takes a whole-systems view and makes recommendations for change.
