VIDEO: Voices of Mothers in Prison

The Prison Advice and Care Trust (Pact) has released a new film to launch a report by the University of Cardiff, which highlights the positive impact of Pact’s work supporting mothers in Eastwood Park Prison. The study examined the impact of the Visiting Mum scheme, which was developed and run by Pact in partnership with Sova, as a three year proof of concept innovation to test out a new approach to meeting the needs of mothers in custody, many of whom struggle with a prison sentence, and who were not receiving visits by their children.
