Visits to prisons have been suspended, and any contact families are able to make has become increasingly challenging. This loss of face to face contact and the restrictions placed on getting money or items into prison have resulted in families feeling a sense of disconnect and hopelessness. At this incredibly difficult time for all of us, Families Outside continue to support in the most effective ways we can which means we can’t offer any face to face support at present, but we will be on the end of the phone, email, text, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Skype, Facebook, and Twitter.
Despite all the changes that the Coronavirus has brought, we are still supporting families through our:
- Helpline 0800 254 0088
- Webchat www.familiesoutside.
- Text FAMOUT to 60777
- Email support@familiesoutside.
- Regional Teams are also providing support, albeit remotely.Please note our operating times are Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm.
If you or someone you are working with needs support, please contact us
We will get through this together, so reach out and get in touch, and don’t worry alone.
