This study was commissioned by the Childhood Development Initiative. It focused on Castlerea Prison and on Counties Galway and Roscommon. It builds on the Family Links Programme which was a multi-agency collaboration and is now part of Irish Prison Service policy. Family Links aimed at developing prison support services for families during the period of imprisonment, including the establishment of a prison family liaison service and provision of training and awareness-raising to parents and prison staff. The focus of the present study is on the family reintegration phase of the prison journey, and the challenges for all the family when imprisonment comes to an end, with a particular focus on children’s needs.
