Name: 'Emily' & 'Amy'
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Cheshire
Campaign: To show how having a parent in prison can impact children’s lives

We feel that parents in prison often don't realise how their sentence is impacting their family on the outside.

 

Having a mother, father or close relative behind bars can make you feel incredibly isolated and like nobody is there for you.

 

We want others to understand that going through this as a young person can be very difficult and scary.

 

That's why we've made a short film with the help of Fixers, showing what it can be like for young people whose parents are serving a prison sentence. 

 

Hopefully, it can help those in similar circumstances understand that they are not alone and allow incarcerated parents to see the situation from their children's perspective.
