Abstract

The Stimulus for the Study

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde had identified through previous research that there was a need to engage with families that are affected by the criminal justice system in order to improve the experience for children and young people.

A consortium of two universities supporting a Scottish voluntary organisation that works solely on behalf of families affected by imprisonment was commissioned to undertake a participative research project over 18 months to elicit from children, young people, their families and involved professionals what the problems were and to co-produce proposed solutions. An estimated 27,000 children are affected each year by parental incarceration in Scotland. GIRFEC - Getting It Right For Every Child, now enshrined in Scottish legislation through the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, is a sound building block for supporting children whose parents come into contact with the criminal justice system.
