Families Connected – New Grant

Sussex Prisoners’ Families is developing new ways of supporting families online, thanks to a new grant from Nesta.

With the £17,500 fund we will enable families to support each other online during times of crisis and to keep them up to date with vital information and support services. 

Over the coming year, we will integrate our existing digital channels, allowing us to reach a wider audience across Sussex.  It will also allow us to innovate and test new digital approaches to supporting families in crisis, establishing a model which has the potential to be replicated elsewhere.

Over the next two months we will be consulting with families who can find out more or have their say on what this new digital platform should look like. We will we posting questions on our website and Facebook pages soon.

To find out more, email denis@sussexprisonersfamilies.org.uk
