A Restorative Family Support Programme

The ‘CONNECT’ programme explores the impact of prison on intimate and family relationships. It focuses on how families can restore, build and maintain healthy relationships.


“To know the value of 15 minutes? Ask someone with a loved one in prison … those 15 minutes are the lifeline of a relationship”.

Prisoner’s Family member


The programme is delivered in partnership with the Prison through its Family Services provision. It consists of a separate family and prisoner induction session, followed by six joint sessions, each lasting 2.5 hours, that focus on supporting families throughout the custodial period, by developing restorative communication skills; emotional recognition; and empathy building, encouraging families to stay connected and prepare for life after prison.
