“… we have a collect-call system through which criminals support the cost of incarceration instead of taxpayers.”

“A collect-call system? Isn’t that the families paying for the calls?”

“Families, criminals – it’s the same thing.”

Bernstein 2005: 87

  • Glasgow-based charity to support prisoners and their families
  • Parenting programme as part of addictions course in HMP Barlinnie
  • Support both prisoners and families
  • Needs-based service

“Putting bars between a woman and her children may be enough to make her think about how she has hurt them, but if you offer her no means of making things better, that painful realization can lead right back to drugs.”

Bernstein 2005: 245

one stop child care families united programme
One Stop Child CareFamilies United Programme
  • Now SmileChildcare
  • Independent charity focused on the needs of families and carers
  • 12 2-hour sessions at HMP Edinburgh
  • Course to identify how prisoners can support family and improve own caring role
  • Initially to include partner

“Think about how central being a parent is to our lives, how it motivates us, causes us to act one way or another. To presume to motivate prisoners towards changing their lives and not include in the calculus their relationship with their children is bizarre.”

- Ben de Haan, Children’s Justice Alliance, Oregon
