Our Charitable Programmes

Prison Support

When a parent has to spend time in prison it can have a profound effect upon the whole family. Working with the Prison Service, we make sure that family contact is maintained - however long the separation.

Family Days

Family days are held at the Isle of Man prison every year. These give prisoners, prisoners' children and partners an opportunity to meet together at a specially organised day of activities. To be allowed to take part in the day, prisoners have to be 'enhanced status' for themselves and their families. The Children's Centre works alongside a number of other organisations (Prison Works, Mother's Union, Salvation Army) and the prison itself, helping to organise and deliver the sessions. We also make sure that we monitor and assess them carefully afterwards.

Other support

We also arrange and deliver a specially organised half day parenting workshop, which we run at the prison. All prisoners wanting to attend the family days have to have completed one of these at least once before they can take part in a Family Day.


There are many ways you can support our work.
