Out of the Shadows is an interactive, multi-agency training session that is specifically aimed at professionals who come into contact with families affected by imprisonment. (This includes, but is not limited to health professionals, social workers, teachers, prison staff, police officers, and third sector partners.)
The half day workshop highlights the experiences, and needs, of families affected by imprisonment and provides participants with the tools, techniques and resources to better support them.

Understand the policy context of support for prisoners’ families;
Understand the issues experienced by families when someone goes to prison;
Understand the particular wellbeing challenges faced by children and young people;
Recognise the role of stigma as a barrier to families seeking/getting support;
Gain knowledge of support sources and good practice;
Have increased confidence in working with families affected by imprisonment.
