Think Support Groups Aren’t for You….?

Think again! Our support group meets on the first Monday of each month in central Brighton at 1pm. We are a friendly, informal group and offer each other support in a relaxed environment. We also offer regular outings and opportunities for families to have their say about the issues that affect them. Get support from people who have been there! For details of the exact venue, or if you would like someone to meet you before the group starts, please contact or call 01273 499843

West Sussex Families – We Need to Hear from You!

We want to hear from people in West Sussex who have a family member in prison. We are also keen to hear from professionals who have supported a family member with someone in prison.

Please take a few minutes by telling us how having a family member in prison has affected you and others. We will use the findings to develop a better understanding of the needs of prisoners’ children
and families and to identify what could be improved.
