When someone is charged with an offence, or is sent to prison, every member of the family is affected – partner, parent, child, brother, sister, grandparent. Visiting a relative in prison is painful, and stressful. Apart from any emotional distress that separation can bring, there can be shame, sadness, anger, financial hardship, the daily struggle to keep the family together, and worries about children and teenagers.

HOPE recognises that each family is different, and each individual within it is different. Most of all, families need to know that they are not alone, and that someone is there that they can trust. They need to be able to speak about their feelings and know that someone understands their problems.
We currently have Family & Throughcare centres in Glasgow’s East End, Greater Pollok and Dumbarton where anyone who needs support and wants to talk can contact us to make an appointment to meet us for informal but confidential chat.
