About Children Heard and Seen
Approximately 312,000 children are separated from a parent by a prison sentence every year in the UK. There is currently no statutory framework in place designed to support, or even identify, these children. We are the only UK charity dedicated to supporting this isolated and stigmatised group of young people in their own communities, supporting 225 children last year alone. Our specialised staff work with families to create a tailored package of support. We offer 1-1 support with trained staff, volunteer mentoring, parent support, peer support groups for children, online activities for children, and activity days.
