UpFamilies – Online resources to support prisoners’ families

UPFAMILIES

ONLINE RESOURCES TO SUPPORT PRISONERS’ FAMILIES

Περιγραφή

Despite the significant developments made in the Criminal Justice System field (CJS), little attention has been paid to prisoners’ families and their needs during the re-entry process.
The incarceration experience has significant economic, social and psychological effects on prisoners’ families who are among the most vulnerable and disadvantaged populations in society, experiencing multidimensional and intersectional forms of inequality (Western and Pettit, 2010).
Many of the consequences on prisoners’ families can be alleviated by moderators such as the support provided by non-governmental organizations, welfare policies and social services (Condry & Smith, 2018). However, these families often lack awareness on where and how to look for this support.
The UpFamilies project aims to provide them a compendium of existing services available, from local to national, which can help them cope with the effects of imprisonment. The services’ up-to-date information will be made available using a mobile application.
At the same time, the project intends to raise awareness on the importance of capacity building of the organisations that daily work with these families, so that they can be better prepared for their unique needs.
