Prison damaging to father-child relationship: Report

The Griffith University research found the father-child relationship was greatly damaged by time behind bars and negatively affected children.

Professor of Criminology at Griffith University, Susan Dennison's report Vulnerable families: A study of Indigenous paternal imprisonment and its impact on Indigenous children, their caregivers and communities, highlights the damage of incarceration on father-child relationship. She recommends the state government looked at improving access for children to fathers in prison.
