‘Women Prisoners: Throw Away the Key?’ was originally broadcast by the BBC in June 2016. Circle, through their partnership with the Shine Women’s Mentoring Service, supports one of the young people featured in this documentary. ‘Sarah’ shared her views and experiences of being a child whose mother has been in and out of prison.
Circle provides whole family support to mothers, their children and families in their homes within their communities. This approach to supporting the most vulnerable families in our communities is what works and ultimately makes a difference to minimising the ‘shattering impact on the families’ of those who are imprisoned.
