PSS - Family Impact Project


Our work covers two key areas; support for families affected by alcohol and substance misuse and support for families affected by imprisonment.


Families affected by alcohol and substance misuse - we offer a 'whole family' approach, supporting all family members through the recovery process. Our service includes:


  • One to one sessions and group workshops
  • Outreach support
  • Parenting programme
  • Children's therapeutic group programmes
  • Grandparents support groups
  • Guest speaker presentations
  • Advice on recovery options
  • Signposting


Families affected by imprisonment - we provide support to children with a parent in prison or children whose parents has been in prison and has recently been released. Our 'whole family' model means we also offer support to the child, their parent/carer, and where possible, the prisoner post release. We provide families with:


  • Advice on what to tell children about imprisonment
  • One to one support for children to discuss their wishes regarding contact
  • Peer group support for children where they can meet others who share their experience whilst having fun
  • Support group for adults who have a loved one in prison
  • Advocacy support (we can speak to prison, probation and other services on your behalf)
  • Facilitate contact between children and their parents in prison via letters or support for attending prison visits.
